Very interesting behind-the-scenes development over at Brothers & Sisters

An ABC spokesperson is confirming that Monica Breen and Alison Schapker are out as showrunners and longtime B&S scribe David Marshall Grant is in.

The ABC rep adds that Breen and Schapker continue to serve as executive producers/writers on the show but are now “concentrating more on development.”

Note to self: Do some digging. Something about this smells a little fishy.
