"House" Star Becomes one of Highest-Paid Stars on TV


Hugh Laurie Gets a Raise
'House' star may also get a producing credit

Hugh Laurie will reportedly become one of TV's highest-paid stars under the teams of a new deal with Universal Media Studios.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Laurie's pact will keep him with his hit FOX drama "House" through the 2011-12. The trade paper says Laurie's new salary would be in the roughly $400,000 per episode, or more than $9 million per season.

Laurie, whose original "House" salary was only in the mid-five figure range, may also get a producing credit of some sort. The Emmy nominated star's last salary bump had come in the summer of 2006 when his per-episode rate increased to $250,000-$300,000.

Even after the new deal, Laurie's salary will still lag behind his network cohort Kiefer Sutherland, who makes roughly $500,000 per "24" episode. Both FOX stars can only envy exiting "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" star William Petersen, who makes a reported $600,000 per episode.

The fifth season of "House" premieres on Tuesday (Sept. 16). During his run on the series, Laurie has won a pair of Golden Globes and been nominated for three Emmys.
