Blake McCormick Named ‘Cougar Town’ Showrunner, Inks Warner Bros TV Deal

Cougar Town writer-producer Blake McCormick has been elevated to showrunner of the ensemble comedy as it heads into its fifth season and second onTBS. McCormick replaces Ric Swartzlander, who ran Cougar Town last season. Additionally, McCormick has signed a blind script deal with Warner Bros TV through studio-based Doozer, the company of Cougar Town co-creator/executive producer Bill Lawrence. Lawrence exited Cougar Town after Season 3 to segue into his overall deal at Warner Bros TV but ended up being pretty hands-on during Season 4 since he didn’t have a series on the air. That likely won’t be the case next season as he has three pilots in contention for series pickup: Undateable at NBC, I Suck At Girls at Fox and Ground Floor at TBS.

McCormick, repped by UTA, Kaplan Perrone and attorney Jared Levine, has been on Cougar Town for the past three seasons, starting out as a co-producer in 2010. Prior to that, he served as a co-producer on the Fox Comedy King Of The Hill. On the feature side, McCormick’s 2012 Black List script Untitled Cops Comedy sold to Universal with American Wedding writers Jon Hurwitz & Hayden Schlossberg attached to direct and produce.
