  • Information posted on Watch With Kristin on E! Online indicates that some of the original writers will no longer be working on NBC’s Life starring Damian Lewis, but the show’s creator Rand Ravich sent assurances stating:

    “It was a learning process. Charlie’s a very difficult person to write; it’s a very fine line. Season one was about learning what the show needed, and I think every first season is kind of a shakedown with crews. I don’t think there were any hard feelings [from the people that left], I just think people went on to do what they want to.”
