Salary and Contracts: There's a natural curiosity around how much a guy like Lorne earns every year from NBC. Unfortunately the answer is not a simple flat annual amount. Even if he was just executive producing SNL, that would be an extremely lucrative gig, but Lorne produces several shows for NBC outside of SNL and has produced dozens of extremely successful movies during his career.

As a producer, Lorne signs "overall deal" contracts with studios/companies. An overall deal typical provides the producer a large lump sum payment up front with additional payments when shows and movies are created.

Lorne's income is derived from two primary deal sources: 1) Film development and 2) Television production. For three decades he had a film development contract with Paramount. This partnership produced most of the movies you're thinking of ("Wayne's World", "Tommy Boy", "A Night at the Roxbury" etc…). Starting in 1999, every SNL cast contract included a clause that required the actors to agree give SNL Films, Lorne's production company, the first option on the actor's first three movies. It's understandable. SNL makes the actors famous. Their first few movies, ESPECIALLY if they are based on characters created at SNL, should belong to Lorne.

As a television producer he has long been based with NBC/Universal/Comcast. This partnership obviously produced "Saturday Night Live", but also "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon", "30 Rock", "A.P. Bio" and "Late Night with Seth Myers".

In April 2018, Lorne was wooed away from Paramount and signed a film development deal with NBC Universal. At that point, for the first time in his career he was 100% under the NBC umbrella for all producing duties.

Between the two deals, a source tells us that Lorne earns the equivalent of $30 – 40 million per year if you were to back into an annual number. As we stated a moment ago, NBC pays Lorne a large percentage of his total deal value upfront. So he doesn't necessarily earn a significant salary every year. For example, let's assume Lorne earns the equivalent of $30 million per year and is operating under a 5-year contract. That would mean a total deal value of $150 million. It's likely that Lorne was paid a large percentage of that upfront, plus smaller amounts over the years and as milestones are reached.
