After receiving a second-season renewal, a USA Network show will also receive a new showrunner, reports Deadline.com.
“Suits” creator Aaron Korsh is being promoted from co-executive producer to executive producer and showrunner. He replaces Sean Jablonski, who was the show’s executive producer and showrunner for the first season.
It’s not uncommon for TV shows to tap experienced showrunners for a new series until a program’s novice creator learns the craft of showrunning, the story points out. Korsh had no producing experience before "Suits" and had only served as a staff writer on two series, "The Deep End" and "Notes From the Underbelly," before he created "Suits."
