In a case of one former Fox executive-turned-producer replacing another former Fox executive-turned-producer, David Nevins (above, right) is expected to take the top entertainment gig at Showtime — replacing Bob Greenblatt (above, left).

No deal has been announced yet, and Nevins was said to be mulling several options (following his departure as president of Imagine TV, which was revealed today). But a deal is expected shortly, as Greenblatt is indeed stepping
down as entertainment prexy after seven successful years.

Speculation about Greenblatt making the
decision to move on has been rampant for weeks.

Greenblatt’s exit is
coming entirely of his decision as his most recent contract is set to expire
next month. Exec has had a stellar run of developing signature skeins that have
transformed the pay cabler, including “Dexter,” ‘Weeds,” “Nurse Jackie,” “The L
Word,” “Californication” and “The Tudors.”

A rep for Showtime
declined comment, as did Nevins.
