Silver, scribes take over 'Moonlight'
by Nellie Andreeva
Executive producer Joel Silver and the writing team of CBS' "Moonlight" collectively will shepherd the four additional episodes of the freshman drama as showrunner/executive producer Chip Johannessen has exited.
The vampire drama is not expected to name a new showrunner for the four-episode order but will do so if the series is picked up for a second season.
"Moonlight," which has shown promise on Fridays and was the only CBS freshman series kept on the air throughout the strike, has had its share of behind-the-scenes shuffles, including the summer departure of executive producer/showrunner David Greenwalt.
