‘Ray Donovan’ Exec Producer to Take Leave of Absence

Bryan Zuriff recently plead guilty for his role in an online gambling case

Bryan Zuriff, exec producer of Showtime’s “Ray Donovan,” is taking a leave of absence from the show after he plead guilty in a New York online gambling case.

Showtime released a statement saying they, “respect and appreciate Bryan Zuriff’s decision.”

Zuriff also gave his statement saying ““I’m incredibly grateful to have been a part of the extraordinary Ray Donovan family. Out of respect for my colleagues at the network and everyone involved with the show I’m voluntarily taking a leave of absence so that the resolution of my personal legal matters won’t distract from the audience’s great response to the program. I appreciate all the support I’ve received and look forward to everyone’s continued success.”

Zuriff plead guilty last week in a New York federal court for his role in a high-stakes online sports betting business run by organized crime operation.

“Ray Donovan” was recently renewed for a second season after earning solid ratings since bowing last month.
