"American Dad" is going through a shakeup before its big move to TBS.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, co-showrunner and co-creator Mike Barker is leaving the animated comedy. Co-creator Matt Weitzman will be the sole showrunner for at least the first four of the 15-episode TBS order. Barker has been with "American Dad" pretty much since its start in 2005.
"American Dad," now in Season 10, is heading to TBS for Season 11 with a 2014 premiere targeted.
“'American Dad' is a great fit for TBS, a favorite of comedy fans who like smart, irreverent humor with ample doses of biting wit and skewering satire,” Michael Wright, president and head of programming for TBS, TNT and Turner Classic Movies (TCM), said in a statement. “We look forward to welcoming Seth MacFarlane and the rest of his team as they bring this iconic show to TBS."
"American Dad" airs 9:30 p.m. EST on Fox.
