Two former "Will & Grace" showrunners and executive producers are joining "Love Bites" as executive producers under a seven-figure, two-year overall deal with Universal Media Studios, reports Deadline.com.
The pair, Tracy Poust and Jon Kinnally, is replacing "Love Bites" creator Cindy Chupack, who stepped down recently from her showrunner role, the story says.
They’ll serve as writing showrunners on the "Love Bites," working with executive producers and non-writing showrunners Shelley McCrory and director Marc Buckland, according to the article.
The show is facing several challenges, the story points out. For instance, star Becki Newton plays a character who is supposed to be a virgin in the pilot, although Newton recently announced she is pregnant, the story says.
Another is the loss of Jordana Spiro, whose character is being written out of the show because the actor had another commitment to TBS’ "My Boys," the article says.
