90210 gallery 320 '90210' hires new showrunners: Patti Carr and Lara Olsen take over for Rebecca SinclairOn the heels of a Season 4 pickup, “90210” has hired replacements for former showrunner Rebecca Sinclair. Taking her place will be former “Life Unexpected” executive producers Patti Carr and Lara Olsen, reports Deadline.

This will be their first showrunning gig, though they both have impressive resumes. The duo has collaborated as executive producers on “Private Practice,” “The Ex List,” “Til Death” and “Reba,” among other shows.

Zap2it spoke with “90210” star Trevor Donovan about Sinclair’s exit. “I think everybody’s just curious to see which direction it’s going to go in,” he says. “We only have control over so much, and there’s only so much you can or should worry about. I think everybody wants the best for the show, so the new showrunners will definitely be qualified and have the experience to send the show in the right direction.”
