Fox’s “Sleepy Hollow” showrunner Mark Goffman is leaving the supernatural drama and has signed an overall deal with CBS Television Studios.
Under the new pact, Goffman will supervise and develop new projects for the studio.
“We are thrilled to be in business with Mark. He is a highly regarded showrunner and has emerged as a unique voice that crosses worlds and genres,” said CBS TV’s executive vice president of Drama Development, Julie McNamara, in a statement. “We look forward to a successful creative collaboration in the coming years.”
Goffman joins CBS TV after serving as showrunner and executive producer on “Sleepy Hollow” for two seasons. He also previously served as an executive producer on USA Network’s “White Collar.” Additionally, Goffman served on the productions of “The West Wing,” “Studio 60” and “Law & Order: SVU.”
The departure from “Sleepy Hollow” leaves some indication that the show won’t be returning for a third season. A Fox representative was unavailable for comment.
