That is, unless you’re part of the writing team for season one. Seem that your services won’t be needed for season two.
Deadline reports that executive producer Frank Darabont is letting the entire writing staff go, including executive producer Charles “Chic” Eglee. The report indicates that Darabont may farm out writing duties to freelancers for the upcoming thirteen episode second season.
Writing staff changes are nothing new in Hollywood, though the wholesale change in writing staff is unprecedented. The concept of a freelance writing staff overseen by an executive producer or showrunner is fairly common in the UK for shows like “Doctor Who” and “Torchwood.”
So, “Dead” could be OK for season two if it can follow the successful model of those shows.
