ABC to bring back TGIF with Tim Allen and Reba McEntire
Tim Doyle (Rules of Engagement) will replace Kevin Abbott as showrunner of the ABC comedy. Abbott will keep his executive producer title, but will now serve as showrunner for Reba McEntire's new sitcom Malibu Country, Entertainment Weekly reports.
As for Krosney? The 22-year-old actress, who played Kristin Baxter, the daughter of Allen's Mike and Nancy Travis' Vanessa, has been let go from the show for "creative reasons," according to TVLine. Sources say the role of Kristin Baxter will be recast.
