'Up All Night' Changes Showrunner In Latest Shakeup

"Up All Night" is having a tumultuous few months. Following the news that the NBC comedy would be put on hiatus while it was retooled from a single-camera show into a multicam sitcom, the series is now changing showrunners, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Series creator Emily Spivey will remain with "UAN," but current showrunner Tucker Cawley is exiting to serve as a consultant producer for "The Mindy Project," to be replaced by "Nurse Jackie" co-creator Linda Wallem. The switch is somewhat surprising, given that Cawley, who was an executive producer on multicam comedy "Everybody Loves Raymond," arguably has more experience with the new format than Wallem.
