Amidst ongoing behind-the-scenes changes taking place for the upcoming sixth season of Private Practice (which most recently involved letting actor Tim Daly go), the series has gotten a new pair of head writers, according to Deadline Hollywood. Craig Turk and Steve Blackman, who have served as co-head writers for the series since the start of the fourth season, have left the series in order to pursue other opportunities. As a result, Barbie Kligman and Jennifer Cecil have been promoted to co-executive producers and co-head writers for the series, meaning that they will run the day-to-day duties of the writer’s room alongside series creator Shonda Rhimes, who remains showrunner. Kligman has worked on Private Practice since the beginning of the fourth season and worked on The CW hit The Vampire Diaries before that. Cecil has been with the series since the fourth season as well, having previously worked on 90210 and Brothers & Sisters. Private Practice returns for its sixth season this fall with an initial 13-episode order.
