Ryan Seacrest is quickly becoming one of ABC's busiest stars.

Outlets are reporting that Seacrest's production company signed a multiyear deal to develop scripted content for ABC Studios.

This is, of course, on top of the gigs Seacrest already has with the network.

He joined Kelly Ripa to co-host her daytime talk show in May. Its title then became "Live With Kelly and Ryan."

Seacrest will also host "American Idol" when it returns to TV next year — this time on ABC.

He hosted the singing competition for all of its 15 seasons on Fox, the last of which aired in 2016.

And Seacrest has hosted "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve" countdown on ABC for more than a decade.

Ryan Seacrest Productions was behind the short-lived ABC show "Mixology" back in 2014. It currently produces the Jennifer Lopez-led "Shades of Blue" on NBC and an upcoming show starring Debby Ryan on Netflix.
