Exec producers ankle NBC’s ‘Local Heroes’

Norm Gunzenhauser and Tom Seeley have resigned as exec producers on the NBC midseason series “Local Heroes,” which stars David Keith and Bill Nunn.

The series, from Paramount Network TV, has completed five of 13 episodes ordered and is on a regularly scheduled hiatus.

Gunzenhauser and Seeley were previously supervising producers on “Murphy Brown.”

“Heroes,” which also has been called “Buck and Barry” and “Glory Boys” at various junctures in its development, was scheduled for 8 p.m. Fridays but then held off the fall schedule after CBS set its own comedy block for that night.

Series creator Kenneth Estin left the show several months ago.

NBC has an apparent shortage of replacement shows, so keeping “Heroes” on schedule should be a priority. The network has already scheduled “The Powers That Be” for Saturdays, with a Jay Tarses series under the working title “Smoldering Lust,” an untitled rework of “The Torkelsons” and one-hour revival “Route 66” still in the bullpen.
