A drama series that has just received a renewal also got the news of a key change behind the cameras. USA Network picked up “Queen of the South” for a fourth season, but showrunner Natalie Chaidez won’t be back, according to media reports.
Chaidez “has exited the Fox 21 and Universal Cable Productions drama to focus on development,” The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports. “Instead, Dailyn Rodriguez and Ben Lobato have been promoted to serve as co-showrunners and exec producers, replacing Chaidez. (Chaidez, it should be noted, replaced original showrunner Scott Rosenbaum.)”
THR adds: “Rodriguez joined the Alice Braga cartel drama as a writer in season two, most recently serving as co-exec producer. Lobato, who joined as a writer in season one, most recently was supervising producer.”
