Bravo Media executive Lara Spotts has transitioned from her role as senior VP of development to showrunner.

As VP at the NBCUniversal-owned network, Spotts was tasked with overseeing non-scripted and scripted efforts on both the East and West Coasts for pilots, casting reels and original concepts. She will now lead the network’s first scripted comedy series Odd Mom Out, created by and starring Jill Kargman, a Bravo spokesperson confirmed to realscreen.

She replaces previous showrunners Julie Rottenberg and Elisa Zuritsky who decided not to return for a 10-episode third season, which begins production next spring in New York.

Spotts, a member of the Writers Guild of America, led Bravo into the scripted space in 2014 with the network’s first drama Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce. Her production credits have previously included Newlyweds: The First Year, Thicker Than Water and The People’s Couch.
