John Quaintance and David Feeney have been elevated to executive producers and co-showrunners on Fox‘s freshman comedy Ben And Kate. They will co-run the series with a creator/executive producer Dana Fox. They succeed Garrett Donovan and Neil Goldman, who departed over a month ago. Gail Lerner, who came on board following Donovan and Goldman’s exit to lend senior-level support several days a week, is staying on.
Ben And Kate is the lowest-rated member of Fox’s new Tuesday comedy block. It launched to mostly positive reviews and landed a six-episode back order from the network, bringing its freshman season to 19 episodes. CAA-repped Quaintance previously worked on Notes From The Underbelly, Perfect Couples and Whitney. Feeney’s series credits include According To Jim and 2 Broke Girls. He’s with UTA.
