The ABC drama "Revenge" has named a new showrunner following the departure of Mike Kelley. TheWrap.com reports that the series tapped executive producer and writer Sunil Nayar for the job.
As previously reported, a behind-the-scenes shakeup led to Kelley’s departure, with tension on the set leading to what Kelley called a "difficult mutual decision."
Nayar will take on the showrunner role if ABC renews the show for a third season. The role would be part of a new two-year deal Nayar made with ABC Studios, the show’s producer, TheWrap reports. Nayar previously has worked on "Body of Proof" and "Three Rivers."
