High Potential: Rob Thomas Exits as Showrunner of New ABC Drama

We’re getting a whiff of high drama over at High Potential.

Veteran producer Rob Thomas (Veronica Mars, Party Down) has exited as showrunner of the upcoming ABC drama, our sister site Variety reports, after having been “not seen recently on set” — though the parting of ways is described as “amicable.”

A new showrunner has not yet been named.

High Potential is set to debut this fall, airing Tuesdays at 10/9c (where it will lead out of Dancing With the Stars, seeing as Will Trent and The Rookie are both riding the pine until 2025).
