Grey's Vet Eyed to Take Over The Catch, ABC's Midseason Shondaland Drama

There’s been a catch behind the scenes of ABC’s The Catch.

Showrunner Jennifer Schurr is exiting the Shondaland-produced series due to creative differences, TVLine has confirmed. EW.com first reported the news.

Frequent Shonda Rhimes collaborator Allan Heinberg (Grey’s Anatomy, The O.C.) is being eyed to take over as executive producer on the show, which is slated for midseason and stars The Killing‘s Mireille Enos as Alice, an elite fraud investigator who ironically finds herself the victim of a long con perpetrated by her fiancé Kieran.

Schurr’s departure isn’t the first big change to The Catch since ABC ordered its pilot to series. Last month, Damon Dayoub (NCIS) and Bethany Joy Lenz (One Tree Hill) were replaced by Peter Krause (Parenthood) and Sonya Wagler (Lost) in the roles of Kieran and his actual wife Zoe.

Hannibal scribe Schuur penned the pilot, which is based on an idea by novelist Kate Atkinson and Helen Gregory. Filming has not yet begun on Season 1.
