Best-selling novelist Jennifer Weiner has inked a two-year overall deal with ABC Studios.

The Hollywood Reporter says she will create and executive produce series projects for the studio.

Several of Weiner's books have made the transition to the big screen. In Her Shoes was made into a 2005 feature starring Cameron Diaz. "Little Earthquakes" is in development at Universal, while her short story "The Guy Not Taken" is in the works at DreamWorks. Her next novel, "Certain Girls," the sequel to her breakout debut "Good in Bed," was released this month.

"Jennifer's work is loved by legions of fans," ABC Studios president Mark Pedowitz said. "Millions have read her books, seen the film and will soon have another source to enjoy her humor and heart on television."
