'House' hyphenate staying in NBC U family

Daniel Sackheim is leaving “House” for “Life.”

Hyphenate has inked a new two-year deal with NBC Universal Television Studio that calls for him to direct and exec produce the studio’s new Peacock drama “Life.” He’s spent the last several seasons on the NBC U-produced Fox hit “House.”

Sackheim has worked as a director on some of TV’s biggest hits, with stints on “The X-Files,” “NYPD Blue,” “ER” and “Law & Order.” He also helmed 2001 feature “The Glass House.”

Rand Ravich wrote and exec produced the “Life” pilot and will continue in that role for the series, along with exec producer Far Shariat.

Elsewhere on the staffing front, 20th Century Fox TV has shored up the team for its new ABC drama “Women’s Murder Club.”

Scott Gemmill has joined the show as showrunner, exec producing alongside scribes Liz Craft and Sarah Fain.

Gemmill last season exec produced the CBS drama “Smith.” His credits also include “ER,” “JAG” and “Jonny Zero.”

Also still on board, as nonwriting exec producers: Joe Simpson, Brett Ratner and James Patterson.

Gretchen Berg and Aaron Harberts, who were behind the short-lived but critically acclaimed WB entry “Pepper Dennis,” are set as co-exec producers. Their other credits include “Wonderfalls” and “Roswell.”
