Paul Sciarrotta, whose previous credits include “Jane the Virgin” and The CW’s last “90210” reboot series, will take over as showrunner of “BH90210.” Series creators Chris Alberghini and Mike Chessler will now also serve as co-showrunners . Sciarrotta, who has an overall deal with CBS Television Studios, was previously a member of the show’s writing staff.
A number of writers departed the show alongside Smith, though according to an individual familiar with the matter, the writers’ room has since been “beefed up” and is back on track in the wake of the departures.
