BATTLESTAR GALACTICA (Syfy) - Ronald D. Moore is moving to Sony Pictures Television as part of a new two-year overall deal with the studio. The pact spells the end of his run at Universal Media Studios where he had been based. Financial details weren't given about the deal, which will see him create new series projects for Sony via his Tall Ship Productions banner.


BONES (FOX) - Karyn Usher, a co-executive producer on the series, has inked a two-year, seven-figure overall deal with 20th Century Fox Television. The pact calls for her to remain at the veteran drama as well as develop new series projects for the studio.


THE PERFECT TEACHER (LMN, New!) - Megan Park ("The Secret Life of the American Teenager"), David Charvet ("Melrose Place") and Boti Bliss ("CSI: Miami") are set to star in the cable channel's latest original, about "a spoiled high school student who becomes obsessed with seducing her teacher." Park and Charvet will play the student and teacher, respectively, with Bliss as Charvet's girlfriend. The Thrill Films and Capital Productions are co-producing the project, which began production last month for a premiere date later this year.


UNDERCOVERS (NBC) - The Peacock has given a 13-episode series commitment to the drama pilot, about a domesticated husband (Boris Kodjoe) and wife (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) who return from years in retirement and are re-activated as CIA agents. J.J. Abrams and Josh Reims co-created the Warner Bros. Television-based hour, which was helmed by Abrams. Ben Schwartz, Carter MacIntyre, Gerald McRaney and Jessica Parker Kennedy also star. "We have tremendous confidence in this promising series and feel this is a great way to kick off our upcoming Upfront development announcements," the network's Jeff Gaspin said in a statement. "J.J. has delivered another signature series along with our partners at Warner Bros and we couldn't be happier." Bryan Burk also serves as an executive producer for Bad Robot Productions.
