A big change is taking place behind the cameras on an HBO drama series. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that showrunner Terence Winter has left “Vinyl” after serving as showrunner for the first season of the Martin Scorsese- and Mick Jagger-produced rock ‘n’ roll series.
Winter will be replaced by executive producer Scott Z. Burns, the story notes. The series was renewed for season two back in February after airing just one episode.
In a statement, HBO said: “As we head into the second season of ‘Vinyl,’ we have decided it is an appropriate time to make a change in the creative direction of the show. We have enjoyed a longtime partnership with Terry Winter at HBO on projects from ‘The Sopranos’ to ‘Boardwalk Empire’ to ‘Vinyl,’ and we look forward to our next collaboration with him. We are pleased to welcome Scott Z. Burns, executive producer and showrunner, and Max Borenstein, executive producer, as the new team helming the show.”
