Jason Katims, showrunner of NBC’s “Friday Night Lights,” is coming aboard “Bionic Woman” as a consultant, reports Variety. He’s expected to help with shaping and writing scripts.
Katims will continue to focus the bulk of his energies on running “Friday Night Lights,” which begins its second season on Oct. 5.
The hiring comes in the wake of the departure of co-showrunner Glen Morgan last week. David Eick remains in place as showrunner, working with executive producer Jason Smilovic.
Katims first broke through as the creator-executive producer of UPN’s “Roswell.”
