New showrunner for Dirty Sexy Money
Cerone is expected to bring more edge to the dark dramedy, perhaps because he's been so successful doing the same thing as co-executive producer on Showtime's Dexter. In an interview with Hollywood Reporter, he said, "Since the pilot, I felt like the show had some of the best potential for storytelling and exploration of characters both on the light and the dark side."
He doesn't plan earth-shattering changes for the series. "It's more about keeping all the best elements and adding as much intrigue, drama and danger as we possibly can." If Cerone is right, the recent WGA strike may have been a blessing in disguise for Dirty Sexy Money. "There is a real desire to essentially relaunch Dirty Sexy Money." That said, as TV Squad previously reported, ABC has ordered 13 episodes for next season; there'll be no more new shows this spring.
