By Daniel S Levine,

Even though his wife, Mariah Carey, is currently working with Fox, Nick Cannon is set to continue his relationship with NBC. Cannon signed a first-look deal with the network and committed to another season of hosting America’s Got Talent.

According to The Wrap, NCredible Entertainment, the production company run by Cannon and his manager, Michael Goldman, agreed to develop both scripted and unscripted shows for NBC.

“We are gratified to know that this new agreement will expand our successful working relationship with Nick beyond America’s Got Talent and allow him to further draw on his notable creative instincts,” NBC president of alternative and late night programming Paul Telegdy said in a statement. “Nick already has produced content for many entertainment genres and formats, and we look forward with great anticipation to his cutting-edge ideas in the months to come.”

Cannon, 32, will also host another season of AGT, NBC’s summer competition show. He has hosted since 2009.

NCredible has already produced a number of shows in development, including Incredible Crew, a live-action sketch comedy show for Cartoon Network, notes Deadline. Cannon is also working on MTV2’s Wild ‘N Out reboot.

He has also directed his first film, School Dance, for Lionsgate.

Carey, Cannon’s wife, currently works for Fox as one of the new judges for American Idol.
