EW has confirmed that Ann Biderman will be leaving her post as showrunner of Showtime’s Ray Donovan.
Biderman wrote and created the fixer crime drama, and served as showrunner for the first two seasons. Biderman will stay on the show as a creative consultant, with Mark Gordon and Bryan Zuriff staying on as executive producers. The Hollywood Reporter was the first to report the news.
Showtime President David Nevins said in a statement, “Ann Biderman is a uniquely gifted writer and creator. She has done great work on Ray Donovan from her very first pitch through the first two amazing seasons. Ray Donovan has become a signature asset for Showtime and Ann will continue as a creative consultant on the show. We look forward to continuing our relationship with her.”
There are talks for Ray Donovan writer and executive producer David Hollander to continue on as showrunner for the drama, which was recently renewed for a third season.
