Sci-fi show gets change in showrunner

Just as viewers got their first peek at new sci-fi drama “V” on Tuesday, the show has undergone a change at the top.

Scott Rosenbaum has been named showrunner-exec producer of “V,” replacing Scott Peters, who will continue as an exec producer alongside Jace Hall and Steve Pearlman. Also out in the shuffle is exec producer Jeff Bell, who has departed the show.

As part of the change, Rosenbaum has sealed a two-year, seven-figure overall deal with Warner Bros. TV, the studio behind “V.”

Change is the latest hiccup in the early run of “V,” which has scored rave reviews but halted production after the show’s initial four episodes. Series, which bows Tuesday night, returns in the spring with the nine remaining segments of its initial 13-episode run.

Rosenbaum’s credits include serving as an exec producer on “The Shield” and “Chuck.”

He’s repped by UTA.
