Nutter Leaving Roswell?

Director David Nutter, executive producer of The WB’s hit show Roswell, has taken a leave from the teen alien series to helm the two-hour pilot of James Cameron’s upcoming Fox series Dark Angel, a spokeswoman for The WB told SCI FI Wire. “He’s on a leave of absence to direct the pilot of Dark Angel,” said Suzanne Gomez, a spokeswoman for The WB.

Rumors have circulated that Nutter will leave Roswell entirely for the new show, but Gomez could not confirm those reports. “He’s out for the rest of the season,” she said. “About next season, we just don’t know whether he’ll be with Dark Angel or Roswell.” Nutter has directed several of episodes of Roswell, including the pilot. He also executive produces the show with Jason Katims, Jonathan Frakes, Kevin Kelly Brown and Lisa J. Olin.

A veteran of The X-Files and Millennium, Nutter also directed the SF feature film Disturbing Behavior, which featured Roswell co-star William Sadler.

Dark Angel, from director James Cameron (Titanic) and writer Charles Eglee (Murder One), centers on a group of young people in a post-apocalyptic Pacific Northwest.
