Big Move Behind the Scenes for NBC's 'Up All Night' THR
The NBC comedy "Up All Night" will shift showrunners as it moves to a multicamera format this spring, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The sophomore comedy has tapped Linda Wallem, a co-creator of Showtime's "Nurse Jackie," to replace current showrunner Tucker Cawley. Cawley will move to Fox to work as a consulting producer on "The Mindy Project."
"Up All Night" creator Emily Spivey will stay with the rebooted show, the piece adds.
Wallem, who is also getting a two-year overall deal with Universal Television, will reunite with NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt. The two worked together when he ran Showtime, the piece notes.
