Chappelle renews for $50 million

This is great news for Dave and well deserved. Chappelle’s Show is one of my favorites and this means 2 more seasons, plus more ideas and craziness coming soon as he also locks in a development deal for his production company.

Sources familiar with the deal indicate it could be worth about $50 million, vaulting Chappelle, 30, into the rarefied realm of television’s top earners. The new contract is believed to mark not only a steep increase for Chappelle as star, writer, co-executive producer and co-creator of “Chappelle’s Show,” but more significantly, reward him with a hefty chunk of the series’ robust DVD sales.
