Animal Kingdom's Eliza Clark has been hired as the replacement showrunner on FX's Y, according to Deadline. Clark will reportedly also work as a writer and producer on the show, replacing the original co-showrunners Aida Mashaka Croal and Michael Green who left in April.
"A decade ago I devoured the complete Y: The Last Man series cover to cover, imagining how it might take shape on screen," Clark said. "It introduced me to the amazing work of Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra and the complex, fascinating world of Y. I’m thrilled to tell this story and to be working with this immensely talented cast."
The Hollywood trade expects Clark to revise the filmed Y pilot, to rectify the "creative differences" which led Croal and Green to leave the FX-produced show.
"Eliza Clark is an enormously talented writer and producer whose ambitious vision for Y will only enhance the mystique and allure of this powerful story," said FX President of Original Programming Nick Grad. "We are thrilled to have her on board and partner with this stellar cast, Brian, Nina, Brad and Melina."
FX has announced that Y is planned to debut in 2020.
