Barrymore and Miller have a long-running partnership. For her Flower Films, he produced movies like Charlie's Angels and 50 First Dates and the Netflix series The Santa Clarita Diet.

The Tonight Show's current showrunner Jamie Granet-Bederman, who has held the position since November 2020, is stepping down from the post. Having already worked with Jimmy Fallon for 13 years, she is transitioning to working on new projects with the comedian and host.

Granet-Bederman's co-showrunner, Nedaa Sweiss, exited in December. She always planned on holding the position in an interim capacity. Among other projects in development, Sweiss is working on a new comedy series with NBC.
