Fox’s Raising Hope has set a new showrunner for its recently announced fourth season.
As part of Greg Garcia‘s recent deal with CBS Television Studios, the showrunner is exiting the series he created, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. He will be replaced at the helm of the Martha Plimpton comedy by Mike Mariano, who has served as an exec producer and writer on the series since 2010 and previously worked with Garcia on My Name Is Earl.

Garcia inked a rich four-year overall deal with CBSTVS in May. Under the pact, the writer/exec producer received two pilot orders at CBS — Super Clyde, starring Harry Potter‘s Rupert Grint and the “unauthorized” comedy with Up All Night‘s Will Arnett — with one considered a shoo-in to land on the network’s schedule come fall.
Fox renewed Raising Hope — from 20th Television, where Garcia’s Amigos de Garcia Productions banner was previously housed — for a fourth season Monday.
Mariano is repped by CAA.
