Question: I heard that Brothers & Sisters has hired Mark Perry as an exec producer. Do you think it's a good change or not? And does it mean Greg Berlanti is too busy to work on the show?

Answer: It's true that Mark has come aboard, but considering his résumé includes both The Wonder Years and One Tree Hill, it remains to be seen whether this is a good or a bad thing. I'm inclined to give the guy the benefit of the doubt. Regarding Berlanti, a B&S rep insists he's still a "significant part of the show," adding that both of his new ABC dramas Eli Stone and Dirty Sexy Money have offices near the B&S set, which makes commuting a cinch. Also, Jon Robin Baitz and Ken Olin are still around, so rest assured, the show continues to be in good hands. BTW, I hear Michael Nouri will be returning as Saul's "friend" next season. That noise you hear is me trying to contain my excitement.
