New 'Bionic' eyes: Katims


NBC's new sci-fi drama "Bionic Woman" has enlisted the help of "Friday Night Lights" executive producer Jason Katims.

Katims, who is based at Universal Media Studios, which produces both NBC series, will serve as a consultant on "Bionic," a reimagination of the 1970s series.

The move follows last week's departure of "Bionic" executive producer Glen Morgan over what was described as creative differences (HR 9/7).

Katims' focus will continue to be "Lights," which returns for a second season after a critically praised but low-rated first season. As a consultant on "Bionic," he will work with the show's executive producers David Eick and Jason Smilovic.
