Burnett to helm ‘Ed’ seg

Gig to mark first time 'Letterman' exec goes primetime

Worldwide Pants topper and “Ed” exec producer Rob Burnett will make his directorial debut on the hourlong skein.

Though Burnett has been behind the lense for several remotes on CBS’ “Late Night With David Letterman,” the “Ed” gig would mark the first time the “Letterman” exec producer helms a primetimer.

“Ed” actor Tom Cavanaugh and show’s other exec producer and co-scribe Jon Beckerman will also be future guest directors on the program, now in its third season.

Burnett and Beckerman are developing another NBC skein for the 2004-05 season, but Burnett said that the duo didn’t know what that project will look like yet.
