Tomlin was the executive producer and the executive producer is connected to every aspect of the show. But the headwriters were christopher whitesell and dena higley. Christoopher whitesell is back with gary tomlin as headwriter.

Correct me if I'm wrong, and I frequently am, but the headwriter's job is to lay out the basic story structure. He/she doesn't actually write breakdowns or daily scripts. If that's true, then, given that the current stories are, to a great degree, a rehash of the same stories that were happening during the Tomlin/Higley era (if better executed now in terms of dialogue and pacing), I think it makes sense to believe that Tomlin, more than Higley was doing most of the headwriting when they were both employed together.
