Echevarria exits MDs

Publish date:

Rene Echevarria has left ABC's MDs as showrunner, an executive
producer who runs the show day-to-day.

Echevarria maintains his two-year development deal with The Walt Disney Co.-owned
Touchstone Television. That deal was signed last June.

MDs, which airs Wednesday nights at 10 p.m., is having a hard time
taking off.

Both MDs and competing hospital drama CBS' Presidio Med are
overshadowed by NBC's Law & Order.
