“Chicago Med” has found new showrunners in Andrew Schneider and Diane Frolov, Variety has learned.
The duo steps in following Andrew Dettmann’s exit. The “CSI” alum was set as showrunner on the pilot, but will not continue with the Dick Wolf medical drama as it goes into series, though he will continue to develop with NBC and Universal TV.
Schneider and Frolov will have writing and producing duties on the show, in addition to running the day-to-day, taking on the roles of exec producers and writing showrunners.
Most recently, the pair worked as co-exec producers on HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire,” and consulting producers on Amazon’s “Bosch.” Previously, they were exec producers on the CW’s “Easy Money,” “Northern Exposure” and were co-exec producers on “The Sopranos” for which they won an Emmy and WGA award. They also created and exec produced Showtime’s “Chris Isaak Show.”
“Chicago Med” follows the day-to-day chaos of a team of doctors in the Windy City, and stars an ensemble of Oliver Platt, S. Epatha Merkerson, Nick Gehlfuss, Yaya DaCosta, Colin Donnell, Brian Tee, Rachel DiPillo and Torrey DeVitto. The series marks the third series in the “Chicago” franchise, following “Chicago Fire” and “Chicago PD.”
In addition to Schneider and Frolov, Wolf will exec produce, along with Matt Olmstead, Michael Brandt, Derek Haas, Arthur Forney, Danielle Gelber and Peter Jankowski. The series hails from Wolf Films and Universal TV.
Schneider, Frolov and Wolf are all repped by WME.
“Chicago Med” premieres Nov. 17 on NBC.
