The BBC's head of drama in Northern Ireland, Patrick Spence, is stepping down from his post.
Spence, who is responsible for overseeing BBC4's eagerly anticipated drama about the MPs' expenses scandal, Bringing Down the House, is in negotiations for a new role, which may be within the corporation.
According to a BBC Northern Ireland spokeswoman, the Northern Ireland drama department will now be restructured and a "new post will be created".
