State of Affairs” hasn’t even aired yet and things are getting rocky already. A few more weeks and the show is set to air on NBC but will it still air? That’s what we are going to find out. Read on for more details about the recent issue involving NBC’s upcoming TV show.

Variety reported that showrunner Ed Bernero has just left the show. Bernero was only part of the show for a month. It is said that his reason was due to creative matters wherein it seems like Bernero and creator and executive producer Joe Carnahan did not have the same view for the show.

Sources also quickly clarified that his departure doesn’t have anything to do with Katherine Heigl, the star of the show, but it’s really just about creative differences between him and the show’s executive producer.

This was clarified because Heigl was known for having a reputation. It was said that she is “someone who is difficult to work with.” “State of Affairs” will marks the actress’ return to TV after starring in ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy” alongside Patrick Dempsey, Ellen Pompeo and Sandra Oh.

As of the moment, Dario Scardapane is in talks of getting the show “State of Affairs” as showrunner.

Heigl stars in the show as a CIA analyst whose character name is Charleston Tucker. She is  in charge of preparing the president’s security briefing. She is also on a mission to get to the bottom of her fiance’s death, who happens to be the son of the president whom she is close with.

News about the show getting pushed back a little due to this “glitch” has not come out, which probably means that the show is still on and will air on its set date.

“State of Affairs” will air on NBC on November 17, 2014.

What do you think of Bernero’s departure? Things are getting rocky for the show, but it looks like they will be able to fix things and get the show running again. In other news, are you excited to see the show? Let us know by posting your comments below!
