Zuckerman in for Nathan at ‘Criminal Intent’

Dec 8, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Ed Zuckerman is replacing Robert Nathan as one of the executive producers and showrunners of Dick Wolf’s “Law & Order: Criminal Intent.”
Mr. Nathan’s depature comes less than a year after he was named head writer and showrunner for the Jeff Goldblum-focused episodes of “CI,” while Walon Green was put in charge of episodes with Vincent D’Onofrio. Mr. Nathan and Mr. Green’s promotions followed the departure of former showrunner Warren Leight, who left to take over HBO’s “In Treatment.”
The latest showrunner shuffle is being described as an amicable “pitching change,” according to one person familiar with the move. Mr. Nathan is expected to remain a key member of the Wolf pack, while Mr. Green will continue to oversee Mr. D’Onofrio’s episodes. John Coles continues as the New York-based executive producer/director of all episodes.
Mr. Zuckerman is a veteran of Mr. Wolf’s series, writing numerous episodes of various “Law & Order” franchises.
The eighth season of “Criminal Intent” was set to premiere in November. USA executives scrapped that plan at the last minute, pushing the show’s return until early next year.
