Catholic Patricia Heaton's Company Signs Big Deal With CBS TV Studios

Catholic actor Patricia Heaton just finished a nine-year run on ABC with "The Middle," and now she and her company, Four Boys Entertainment, have found a new studio home.

Heaton founded Four Boys in 2001 with British-born actor, producer and director David Hunt, and the name came from their four sons. The company has worked with ABC, Fox and NBC, along with Warner Bros. Television, and is currently in pre-production on an independent film called "Florence, Not Italy," for Hunt to direct.

The new production overall deal is with CBS TV Studios, which has produced such shows as "The King of Queens," the "CSI" and "NCIS" franchises, "The Amazing Race" and "The Good Wife."

From Deadline.com:

Under the CBS Studios pact, FourBoys will develop and produce new series projects and will be seeking a TV vehicle for Heaton to develop and star in, though her acting services will remain non-exclusive to the studio.

The deal brings Heaton back in the CBS fold after her starring role on Everybody Loves Raymond, which earned her three Emmy awards. The hugely successful family comedy also aired for nine seasons.

There's no word yet what projects FourBoys will be bringing to CBS, but the network has shown an openness to faith-based material, whether it's last season's "Living Biblically" or this coming fall's "God Friended Me," so it could get interesting.

Congrats, Patricia and David!
