HBO has lined up a showrunner for True Blood if the vampire drama is ordered for a sixth season.

Now that Executive Producer Alan Ball has decided to step back from his head writer duties after the fifth season that begins June 10, the pay network will bring in co-executive producer Mark Hudis to fill the void. Hudis has worked in the True Blood writers room with Ball since season 4.

In February, HBO released a statement saying that “if we proceeded to True Blood’s sixth season that Alan would take a supervisory role on the series and not be the day-to-day showrunner.  If we proceed to season six, the show will remain in the very capable hands of the talented team of writers and producers who have been with the show for a number of years. This is the best possible world for both HBO and Alan Ball.”

Hudis’ other credits include Nurse Jackie and Miss Guided.
