‘Heroes’ Makes Changes to Save Itself

Nov 10, 2008  •  Post A Comment

The New York Times looks at the decisions NBC’s ‘Heroes’ has made to save itself from dismal ratings. The Times delves deep into the firing of executive producers Jeph Loeb and Jesse Alexander, which it suggests might have come too late, because any script overseen by the pair won’t make it to air before season’s end in May. Anonymous sources tell the Times the firing was ordered from the top by NBC Universal President-CEO Jeff Zucker, which a representative for NBC denies, and that both Loeb and Alexander failed to follow through on creator Tim Kring’s requests to keep plotlines simple and to eliminate extraneous characters.
