Richard Levine and Lyn Greene, the co-showrunners and executive producers of the new Starz series ‘Boss,’ have already left the freshman political drama, Deadline is reporting. The former ‘Nip/Tuck’ executive producers oversaw the eight-episode first season of the show. The series premiered on October 21 and has garnered mostly positive reviews, particularly for Kelsey Grammer’s performance as ruthless Chicago mayor Tom Kane, who has a secret that can threaten his career.
Starz is currently looking for a new writing executive producer to join Farhad Safinia, ‘Boss’s creator and current executive producer for Season 2, which was greenlit before the pilot even premiered. Other executive producers still on the show are director Gus Van Sant, Grammer, Brian Sher and Stella Bulochnikov.
