The deal is to see the showrunners developing film and television projects for Gurney.

Worsoff and Wendel’s producing credits include programming for National Geographic Channel, Nat Geo Wild, A&E, MTV, Bravo, VH1 and CBS. The pair previously co-founded Schweet Entertainment with Jack Osbourne in 2011, and went on to form ThunderPants last November.

In addition, Worsoff served as co-executive producer at Gurney Productions, assisting in the launch of Spike’s Auction Hunters and A&E’s Duck Dynasty. He also launched CW’s Shedding For The Wedding and ABC Family’s The Vineyard as co-executive producer for 25/7 Productions.

ThunderPants is represented by Gordon Hvolka and Ryan Wackerman of agency ICM Partners, and Bob Lange and Uri Fleming of entertainment law firm Kleinberg Lange.
