Michelle Kwan has signed an exclusive four-year deal with Walt Disney Network TV to star in several ice skating specials on ABC, according to Eric Olson of DAILY VARIETY. As part of the deal, Kwan "may only appear in ice skating specials on Disney and ABC." Four shows are planned for primetime airing "over the next four years." Disney Senior VP Paul Villadolid called the pact "the most comprehensive" TV deal ever signed with a figure skater (VARIETY, 4/15).
