Littlefield is Executive Producer on Hulu’s recently ordered series REPRISAL, a hyper-kinetic revenge tale following a relentless femme fatale who after being left for dead, leads a vengeful campaign against a bombastic gang of gear heads. It stars Abigail Spencer and was created by show runner Josh Corbin based on his original idea.
The Littlefield Company recently signed a multi year deal with Fox 21 and 20th Century Fox TV (now DISNEY) for all TV development.
While at NBC, Littlefield was responsible for developing many of the series that defined quality programming. As head of the comedy department he developed The Golden Girls, Alf, and The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. In his last four years as President of the Entertainment Division, Littlefield orchestrated a renaissance at NBC and a return to first place in the ratings race, fueled by a long roster of hit series that he developed. They included: Seinfeld, ER, Friends, Frasier, Mad About You, Just Shoot Me, 3rd Rock From the Sun, NewsRadio, Homicide: Life on the Street, and Law & Order. He was an architect of “Must See TV”. In his final year at NBC, he supervised the development of Will & Grace, Providence, and The West Wing. He initiated the development of Law & Order: SVU, which began the industry trend of procedural spin-offs. Actor Bob Balaban portrayed Littlefield in the HBO film The Late Shift as well as a handful of memorable episodes of Seinfeld.
In May 2012, Doubleday books published Littlefield’s The New York Times bestselling memoir “Top of the Rock: Inside the Rise and Fall of Must See TV,” which documents his record breaking years at NBC.
