'Unusuals' books a showrunner


Bob DeLaurentis has joined ABC's new series "The Unusuals" as showrunner alongside creator Noah Hawley.

The duo will serve as showrunner/exec producers on the series from Sony Pictures TV. The ensemble dramedy, set in a New York police precinct, co-stars Amber Tamblyn, Jeremy Renner, Terry Kinney, Harold Perrineau and Adam Goldberg.

"Unusuals," which was given a series pickup last month, marks Hawley's first show as a creator.

DeLaurentis' credits include serving as exec producer on Fox's "The O.C." and executive producer/ showrunner on NBC's "Providence." He is repped by Endeavor. (partialdiff)
