The search is on for a new “Powerless” showrunner.

NBC’s“Powerless” has just become showrunner-less. Deadline reports that Ben Queen, the show’s creator and executive producer, has stepped down. Production on the series has been delayed in the wake of his departure, though it remains on track for its original midseason premiere date.

According to the report, Queen’s exit was spurred by creative differences, though it was also “a mutual decision by the writer-producer, NBC and Powerless producer Warner Bros. TV.” Prior to his departure, production was slated to begin in two weeks, though it has since been postponed.

“Powerless” will debut in the back half of the 2016/17 television season on NBC.
