(AP) HBO says Susan Lacy, creator and executive producer of WNET's "American Masters," has signed a multi-year deal to produce and direct documentaries for the network.


Lacy will work with Sheila Nevins, president of HBO Documentary Films, as a producer and director.


Nevins on Wednesday voiced excitement at having "someone as talented as Susan Lacy bring fresh ideas to HBO."


While expressing regret at Lacy's departure, PBS president and CEO Paula Kerger declared an "ongoing commitment" to continuing "American Masters."


Created by Lacy in 1986, "American Masters" has produced more than 190 profiles of artists, musicians, writers and filmmakers in its 27-year history. It has won 14 Emmy awards and 12 Peabody awards.


Lacy's individual credits include films on Paul Simon, Rod Serling, Bob Dylan, Judy Garland and John Lennon.
