'Boss' Bosses Exit the Show Kelsey Grammer's new Starz series 'Boss' just premiered last night, and there are already big shake-ups behind the scenes.

According to Deadline, 'Boss' co-showrunners and executive producers Richard Levine and Lyn Greene are exiting the drama series, which was already renewed for a second season (yes, before it even premiered) last month.

Levine and Greene, formerly of 'Nip/Tuck,' were on board for the entire eight-episode first season to oversee things with first-time series creator and executive producer Farhad Safinia. Deadline's sources implied that Safinia was a quick study, but confirmed that the series is searching for a new writer/executive producer to join the team -- which also includes star Grammer, director Gus Van Sant, Brian Sher and Stella Bulochnikov -- for Season 2.

The drama follows Chicago Mayor Tom Kane (Grammer) as he deals with his most recent issue: being diagnosed with a degenerative neurological disorder. The series also stars Connie Nielsen as Kane's wife, Meredith; Kathleen Robertson as Kane's personal aide Kitty; Martin Donovan as senior political adviser Ezra Stone; and Troy Garity as a journalist determined to uncover Kane's secrets.

Ratings for last night's 'Boss' series premiere have yet to come in, but reviews were definitely mixed. Read Mo Ryan's take here.
