There's a change at the top of Fox's Ben and Kate.

The duo replaces former showrunners Garrett Donovan and Neil Goldman (Community), who exited the modestly rated series from creator/executive producer Dana Fox last month, citing creative differences. (For their part, Donovan and Goldman recently inked a two-year overall deal with Ben and Kate studio 20th Television.)

Fox picked up Ben and Kate, starring Dakota Johnson and Nat Faxon, for a reduced full-season of 19 episodes. The rookie series ranks as the lowest-rated entry in Fox's much heralded Tuesday comedy block, airing after Raising Hope at 8:30 p.m.
