The Goldbergs veterans Chris Bishop and Alex Barnow, who have been with the series since its premiere, have been named showrunners of the series produced by Sony Pictures TV, where both are under deals.
Goldberg will remain involved in the series and will continue as an executive producer. His relinquishing day-to-day showrunner responsibilities on The Goldbergs, which films on the Sony lot, comes on the heels of Goldberg leaving Sony Pictures TV for a big overall deal at ABC Studios. He is expected to focus on development for the Disney TV Studios unit.
Meanwhile, both Bishop and Barnow have separate multi-year overall deals with Sony Pictures TV that take them into 2021.
In addition to The Goldbergs, spinoff series Schooled also is undergoing a showrunner change.
