A drama series that has yet to make it to the air is already undergoing a key change behind the cameras. Deadline.com reports that “Counterpart,” which has a two-season direct-to-series order at Starz, is parting ways with Amy Berg.
Production of the series is currently between the first and second 10-episode seasons, having recently wrapped shooting in Los Angeles on season one.
Created by Justin Marks, the sci-fi thriller stars J.K. Simmons, Olivia Williams, Harry Lloyd and Ulrich Thomsen. Berg’s departure is a mutual decision among all parties, according to the report.
The series comes from from MRC, Gilbert Films and Anonymous Content. Marks is showrunner on the series. Morten Tyldum is directing the first episode.
“Berg will still be credited as an executive producer on Season 1 alongside Marks, Tyldum, Gary Gilbert with Gilbert Films, Jordan Horowitz, Keith Redmon and Bard Dorros with Anonymous Content. Simmons also serves as a producer,” Deadline notes.
