For fans of ladies on television, today is a good news day.

ABC's Women's Murder Club is adding a new member...and it's a boy! According to Variety, the drama has brought on Robert Nathan as showrunner to handle things from here on out after the network let go of producers Scott Gemmill, Elizabeth Craft, and Sarah Fain in mid-February.

Nathan has producing and writing credits going as far back as the early 1990s on Law & Order, Dragnet, and ER. With Nathan on, ABC expects the show to go back to production soon and will produce three new episodes scheduled to air in April.

"There are no plans to revamp the series dramatically or shift the emphasis in any way," 20th Century Fox told Variety. "It remains a procedural focused on the four women leads who partner together to solve crimes."

There was also good news for another show that leans toward the fairer sex. NBC has ordered half a dozen more episodes of Lipstick Jungle, says Variety.

The midseason drama stars Brooke Shields, Lindsay Price, and Kim Raver as successful women in New York City looking for love. The series is based on a book by Candace Bushnell, who also offered the inspiration for Sex and the City.

Lipstick Jungle currently airs on Thursday nights at 10 p.m. on NBC.
