Bryan Fuller Leaves ‘Heroes’!
Posted by Brian on 06/23/2009
I think at this point my hatred for Heroes is not only known, but justified. After being given a pass for the storytelling black hole that was the second season, and grasping at straws of greatness last year, I’m not only excited but invigorated to know that Bryan Fuller (Wonderfalls, Pushing Daisies) has now left Heroes as consulting producer, the same position he held in season one. “Development was really starting to heat up, And it appears like I may be writing multiple pilots for NBC so that wasn’t leaving a ton of room for ‘Heroes,’ unfortunately,” Fuller tells AICN exclusively. “We crafted some really great arcs for the season that I’m excited to see come to fruition. I love that cast dearly and am sad to go, but the plate — she was over-flowing.”
Um, yay! Bryan Fuller is one of the most creative writers working in television right now and what the world needs are more Fuller-led television shows. This guy doesn’t need to be in the background on anything. In a perfect world, NBC would have simply handed Fuller the reigns to Heroes and booted Tim Kring. Can you imagine what Fuller would have done with this universe? Fuller is under contract with NBC Universal for another year and a half, and has been preparing new series pitches since he left Warner Brothers. He’s also expressed an ambition to eventually create, or help create, a new Paramount TV series set in J.J. Abrams’ new Star Trek universe.
