Gordon and Gansa, who adapted Showtime hit Homeland from Israeli drama Prisoners of War, are leaving 20th Century Fox to launch their own prodco that will develop projects for SPT as part of the four-year deal, which was first reported by Deadline.

Other shows on which they have collaborated include Sisters and The X-Files, with the deal coming at an opportune moment for SPT, which has seen talent such as Justin Lin and Carol Mendelsohn moving to Apple and Universal respectively.

Gordon and Gansa have spent 10 and 20 years at Fox respectively. They will join David Shore, Aaron Rashaan Thomas and Vince Gilligan at SPT, which has been operating in a competitive space over recent years with streamers snapping up talent such as Shonda Rhimes and Ryan Murphy.
