Actress Lake Bell and 20th Century Fox TV and getting serious. 

The Bless This Mess co-creator and the network behind the hit comedy series have inked a new pod deal via her Lake Bell Prod. banner.

Bell’s deal follows her Bless This Mess co-creator Liz Meriwether, who inked a four-year overall deal with the studio a year ago. 

“Lake Bell is a creative force of nature whose incredible talent extends from acting and directing to writing and producing,” said 20th Century Fox TV president of creative affairs Carolyn Cassidy. “Her hard work and creativity have helped make Bless This Mess into the hilarious, original and warm series we adore. We are thrilled to be able to continue to tell great stories with Lake for multiple platforms.”

“I’m supremely keen to expand my partnership with Carolyn Cassidy, Craig Hunegs, Howard Kurtzman, and the entire 20th Century Fox Television family. They’ve been longtime champions of my work, so I’m honored to be able to find a TV home for my company, Lake Bell Prod. Already, they’ve been exceedingly supportive in my future projects, spanning all tones and genres… but that doesn’t mean my office will be on the lot, because, you know… traffic,” said Bell in a statement.

Bell currently stars in Bless This Mess. She also voices Poison Ivy in the DC Universe animated Harley Quinn. You can see her next on Netflix’s Medical Police.
