Jennifer Garner Inks Production Deal With ABC

Posted on July 15, 2009

Jennifer Garner is returning to ABC, but unfortunately for Alias fans she's not reprising her role as super spy Sydney Bristow. Instead, Jennifer has inked a production deal. Michael Ausiello reports:
Ex-Alias superstar Jennifer Garner has inked a fresh development deal with her old network, sources confirm to me exclusively. What are the specifics of the pact? And does it involve the words "Alias" and "movie"? Keep reading for all the deets...

ABC declined to comment, but I'm told the deal calls for the four-time Emmy nominee to develop projects via her Vandalia Films production shingle (that's tradespeak for "office space on studio lot"). There are no plans for Garner to act in any of said projects (apologies for the shameless Alias tease earlier), but as one Alphabet insider says, "If Jennifer wants to make a guest appearance no one is going to stop her."

The deal -- coming three years after Garner ended her five-season run as Sydney Bristow on Alias -- marks a big turning point for Garner's fledgling production company, which so far has dabbled mostly in independent film.
We don't understand this at all. We want to see Jennifer in front of the camera chasing bad guys. Still, kudos to her for landing the production deal.
