Filming on Season 5 began earlier this month. The show was picked up for a 15-episode fith season by TNT last August. The new season is being lead by new showrunner Jan Nash, who was named Tamaro’s successor last fall.
Nash’s previous credits include the TNT series Memphis Beat and CBS crime drama Without a Trace. Most intriguingly, she started her career on Ellen DeGeneres’ pioneering sitcom, Ellen.
Nash recently joined Twitter and has been a prolific tweeter, posting behind-the-scenes shots and random observations from the set.
