If Last Man Standing gets a fifth season pickup by ABC as expected, the comedy will have a new showrunner. Matt Berry, who served as a co-executive producer on Last Man on its most recent fourth season, has been named executive producer/showrunner for Season 5. He will succeed Tim Doyle, who is moving on after three years at the helm.
Comedy veteran Berry, repped by CAA and attorney Jeanne Newman, previously did stints on ABC’s Malibu Country and Desperate Housewives and Lifetime’s Devious Maids.
