'Alcatraz' already gets a new showrunner
"Alcatraz" doesn't even have a premiere date, but the new FOX drama is having a bumpy launch.
According to Deadline.com, original series creator and showrunner Elizabeth Sarnoff is departing "Alcatraz," citing creative differences. Sarnoff is being replaced by Daniel Pyne and Jennifer Johnson.
The creative shift comes just weeks after WBTV and J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot shingle decided to put productions of new "Alcatraz" episodes on hold in order to tinker with the initial seven episodes. At present, the show isn't shooting at all, though writing and pre-production are still underway.
It remains to be seen what's actually going to happen to FOX's original plans to air "Alcatraz" on Mondays at 9 p.m., with Deadline speculating that FOX may now be eying that time slot for Monday veteran Kiefer Sutherland's "Touch."
