Up All Night Creator Exits Series Prior to Revamp
More change is afoot at Up All Night.
Series creator Emily Spivey is departing the NBC comedy, which is undergoing a creative revamp, per our sister site Deadline.
As reported in October, the single-camera series is switching to the more traditional multi-cam format (à la The Big Bang Theory) following a three-month winter hiatus. Production on five additional episodes shot in front of a live studio audience will begin in February, bringing Season 2′s total to 16 half-hours.
Spivey’s exit comes on the heels of showrunner Tucker Cawley (Everybody Loves Raymond) being replaced by Nurse Jackie co-creator Linda Wallem for the rest of the series’ sophomore run. (Cawley will join The Mindy Project as a consulting producer, as part of his deal with Universal Television.)
