‘CSI: NY’ Alum Trey Callaway Named Co-Showrunner of Fox’s ‘APB’ with Matt Nix (EXCLUSIVE)

Trey Callaway has inked an overall deal with 20th Century Fox Television, and will join Fox’s upcoming drama “APB” as co-showrunner and exec producer, Variety has learned exclusively.

In addition to joining “APB,” on which he’ll share showrunner duties with Matt Nix, under the new pact, Callaway will develop new projects with the studio for network, cable and streaming services.

An alum of “CSI: NY,” Callaway served as a writer/producer on the procedural for more than 120 episodes. Last TV season, he was co-exec producer on CBS’s “Rush Hour,” which was not renewed for a second season, freeing up his schedule for “APB.”

Callaway boarding “APB” comes after Fox’s midseason drama saw a shuffle up top with Nix stepping in to overhaul the script that was originally penned by “APB” creator David Slack, who exited the project over creative differences. In the pilot phase, Nix was co-running with director and exec producer Len Wiseman. At the time of the behind-the-scenes changes, Variety reported that should the project go to series, a new showrunner would be named.

“APB” follows a tech-billionaire who purchases a poor police precinct. Justin Kirk, Natalie Martinez, Caitlin Stasey, Taylor Handley, Eric Winter and Ernie Hudson star.

Callaway was showrunner and exec producer on “The Messengers,” which was on the CW for one season. He was co-exec producer on NBC’s “Revolution.” On the film side, he wrote the screenplay for “I Still Know What You Did Last Summer.”

Callaway is repped CAA, Rain Management Group and Andy Galker at Jackoway Tyerman Wertheimer Austen Mandelbaum Morris & Klein.
