July 28th, 2006


Here’s the scoop from Variety.com and John Lloyd Young’s blog:

The next project for last season’s Broadway breakout talent, John Lloyd Young, might just be in TV.

Young, who picked up a Tony in June for his Rialto debut playing Frankie Valli in Four Seasons biotuner Jersey Boys, has signed a one-year talent holding deal with ABC/Touchstone Television.

Young’s contract with Jersey Boys is up October 1. According to the report, Young is not yet attached to a specific TV project.

Jersey Boys was one of last season’s big successes, and has been grossing more than $1 million per week all summer. Jersey Boys nabbed four Tonys, including the trophy for Best Musical.

Congratulations, John Lloyd!
