Who is the new showrunner of The Morning Show?

As well as continue developing new series for Apple TV under a previously announced overall deal.
“I’m excited to be joining forces with Apple TV and The Morning Show,” said Stoudt.
“One of the fun things about The Morning Show is the humour,” Stoudt told The Hollywood Reporter. “You can write slightly looser scenes, and it can have a little bit of a West Wing-Mad Men chatty vibe. Thrillers tend to be rather narrow. The beauty and the limitations of them is they’re very narrow. You can have a little gallows humour along the way, but you’ve kind of got to keep turning that screw. I try to pick things where I’m like, ‘Can I do that? I’m not sure. So let me try.’ I think all writers do that.”
Matt Cherniss, head of programming for Apple TV, added, “ We’re excited to see where Charlotte takes these extraordinary characters in season three and to watch the magic that Jennifer. Reese and our awe-inspiring cast continue to bring to the captivating world of morning television.
