NBC’s Whitney is, as we already knew, returning — but with a new showrunner at the helm.
Exec producer Betsy Thomas has stepped down from the top spot, and is relocating to NBC’s Guys With Kids (where she’ll serve as a co-ep), EW.com reports. Succeeding Thomas as Whitney‘s new boss is Wil Calhoun, whose sitcom credits include I Hate My Teenage Daughter, Gary Unmarried and, some time ago, Friends. Got advice for Calhoun on how to improve Whitney? Hit comments!
Whitney Season 2 will air Fridays at 8, leading into Community.
