Guggenheim, who created Eli Stone for the network, was brought in as showrunner/co-executive producer after the pilot, according to the Reporter. With a full-season pickup for the show secured, Guggenheim will depart FlashForward to develop other projects.
Co-creator and executive producer David S. Goyer (who wrote Batman Begins and the Blade series) will replace him for the show's back-nine episode order.
The Good Wife switches showrunners
The switch mirrors The Good Wife's showrunner swap last week, in which TV vet Dee Johnson handed over the reins to co-executive producers Michelle and Robert King. Like Guggenheim, Johnson was recruited for The Good Wife's initial 13-episode order while the Kings found their footing.
FlashForward opened strong with 12 million viewers tuning into the pilot; the series has since settled into the 9 million-viewers range.
