Sunday Night EP Mark Llewellyn dismissed from show after probe into bust-up

Sunday NightSunday Night executive producer Mark Llewellyn has been dumped from the program by Seven following a fight with fellow producer Paul Waterhouse. But he will return to the network next year to work on “prime time programming”.

Seven suspended Lewellyn and launched an internal investigation after the bust-up in which he was accused of attacking Waterhouse in the Sunday Night newsroom.

According to the Daily Telegraph Seven West Media chief executive Tim Worner telephoned Llewellyn this morning to deliver the news.

Veteran reporter Ross Coulthart and producer Nick Farrow were forced to step in and break up the fight on October 29 after Llewellyn and Waterhouse clashed over a story.

Seven said in a statement that Llewellyn is taking an “extended period of leave”.

” In 2015, Mark will return to the Network in an executive producer role working on prime time programming,” Seven said.

Llewellyn was the founding executive producer of Sunday Night, which first aired in 2009 and will return for its seventh season early next year.
