Ryan Seacrest Scores New Contract With Comcast, On E! Through 2012

Fresh off naming longtime agent Adam Sher to head up Ryan Seacrest Productions, Ryan Seacrest inked an expansive new deal with Comcast Entertainment Group.

The agreement will keep Seacrest on E! Entertainment Television into 2012, and it includes a first-look deal for all of the Comcast networks.

Seacrest will continue to serve as anchor and managing editor of E! News and executive producer and host of E!'s Live from the Red Carpet specials through early 2012.

Comcast Entertainment Group will also get first-look rights to all Ryan Seacrest Productions projects through August 2011, encompassing not just E! and Style, but also G4, Versus, The Golf Channel and the other entertainment-group properties. The previous deal between Seacrest and Comcast only applied to E! and Style.

Seacrest Productions produces Keeping Up with the Kardashians and Denise Richards: It's Complicated for E!, as well as the upcoming Bromance for MTV and Momma's Boy for NBC.
