ABC’s Designated Survivor is about to have yet another a new guy suddenly thrust into a seat of power, this time behind the scenes. Deadline reports that ABC has chosen a new showrunner for the show’s already announced second season, with Law & Order and NYPD Blue veteran Keith Eisner stepping into the role.

Designated Survivor stars Kiefer Sutherland as Tom Kirkman, a former low-ranking cabinet member forced to grit his teeth through the presidency when terrorists wipe out everybody above him on the chain of command. The show is currently just a few weeks out from wrapping up its first season.
