[22.16 - French Time] Chuck executive producer Scott Rosenbaum has been named showrunner/executive producer of the remake of V, premiering today on ABC.

Scott Rosenbaum replaces showrunner Scott Peters, who stays executive producer (http://www.variety.com/article/VR1118010788.html?categoryid=14&cs=1). This comes after the news that the new V will go on hiatus after only four episodes (http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/cult/a179211/v-to-go-on-hiatus-after-four-episodes.html) and the scrapping by the network of an ambitious plan to cover the skies of 15 major American cities with giant red "V"s to promote the debut of the show.

« [Still,] this isn't the sort of news you want to break on the day of a show's premiere. (Not that I think it will matter -- the premiere of "V" will likely do well in the ratings, but I'm not so sure about the next few weeks) » writes James Hibberd in The Live Feed (http://www.thrfeed.com/2009/11/v-swaps-showrunners.html).

The first four episodes of V are meant to end with a cliffhanger and the show is supposed to return in spring should the ratings of this first batch justify it. The 2009 version of the classic miniseries is scheduled to resume production in January (http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hr/content_display/news/e3i86ae90f3122997621998ffb7a2773776).
