Just as Heroes was gaining some creative momentum comes word of another major setback: Sources confirm that Bryan Fuller has vacated his post as consulting producer. NBC declined to comment, but a Peacock insider tells that the acclaimed Pushing Daisies auteur will focus on developing new projects for NBC. Fuller's exit was first reported by Herc at Ain't it Cool News.
It's unclear what led Fuller to bolt, but conventional wisdom is that it involved creative differences, perhaps with series creator Tim Kring. Shortly after Fuller returned to Heroes last December, he characterized his working relationship with Kring as "positive." He added that Kring remained the show's boss. "Iâm a consultant," he said. "My job is to help facilitate the vision of the show, and the vision has been a little inconsistent."
