ANIMAL PRACTICE Has a New Showrunner


Showrunner Change On NBC’s ‘Animal Practice’ – Marco Pennette To Take Over – by Nellie Andreeva

There is a change at the helm of NBC‘s upcoming comedy series Animal Practice(formerly Animal Kingdom). Gail Lerner, who joined the show after the pilot as executive producer/showrunner, is departing, with Marco Pennette coming in as new showrunner. I hear the gig may be tied to a development/overall deal for Pennette at Universal TV. To accommodate the change and give Pennette time to get up to speed, I hear that the series’ planned hiatus has been pushed up by a week. Animal Practice, which just wrapped Episode 3, was supposed to start Episode 4 right away and take a hiatus next week. It will take the week-long break now instead. read article
