'Moonlight' run for Silver, scribes


Executive producer Joel Silver and the writing team of CBS' "Moonlight" collectively will shepherd the four additional episodes of the freshman drama as showrunner/executive producer Chip Johannessen has exited.

The vampire drama is not expected to name a new showrunner for the four-episode order but will do so if the series is picked up for a second season.

"Moonlight," which has shown promise on Fridays and was the only CBS freshman series kept on the air throughout the strike, has had its share of behind-the-scenes shuffles, including the summer departure of executive producer/ showrunner David Greenwalt.
