Suits showrunner Sean Jablonski replaces writer Steven Lightfoot (Criminal Justice)

The entertainment news website Deadline reported on Thursday that Sean Jablonski has replaced Steven Lightfoot as the showrunner of the live-action television adaptation of the Noir anime. (The showrunner, as the Writers Guild of America puts it, is "in charge of pre-production, production, and post-production. In other words, everything.") Lightfoot was the showrunner for the first season of USA Network's Suits series, and he started writing on the FX series Nip/Tuck before becoming the executive producer for that show also.

Lightfoot (Criminal Justice, House of Saddam), who had written the script for the live-action Noir project that got it green-lit, is no longer with the project.

Starz CEO Chris Albrecht confirmed in August that the live-action Noir series will premiere on his company's television network next summer. That same month, the actors resource website Showfax Inc. posted a character sheet for the project. Executive producers Sam Raimi (Spider-Man, The Evil Dead, Spartacus: Blood and Sand, Xena, Priest, Legend of the Seeker), Bob Tapert (The Evil Dead, Spartacus: Blood and Sand, Xena, Legend of the Seeker), Joshua Donen, and Bill Hamm remain with the project.
