ABC’s “Station 19” Season 6 Just Welcomed A New Head Writer After Controversy

Station 19 season 6

Station 19 is making some changes with its writing room after the controversy that debuted in the news earlier this month!

A writer’s recent draft of an outline for an upcoming Season 6 episode included numerous uses of a racial slur by a racist character. The script was assigned to a white writer, and the word in question was b—-r, a derogatory reference to a person from Latino descent.

Weeks later, the series has a new head writer.

Grey’s Anatomy executive producer Zoanne Clack, MD, MPH, has been named executive producer and head writer of spinoff Station 19. Clack, who has started her new duties as #2 to executive producer/showrunner Krista Vernoff on first-responders drama Station 19, will remain an exec producer on medical drama Grey’s Anatomy, also exec produced/showrun by Vernoff.

On Station 19, Clack is succeeding Kiley Donovan who has stepped down. Per Deadline.

Station 19 returns for its sixth season on Thursday, Oct. 6, at 8/7c!
