What is a Showrunner?

0

A showrunner is in charge of all the creative decisions regarding a television show. Not only are they head writer and run the writer’s room, but they are usually on set making sure production runs smoothly and in the editing bay supervising the cut. All showrunners receive EP credit and are usually the creators of the show as well. Unlike feature film where the director is king, in television, the showrunner outranks the director in all creative processes. Some notable showrunners include:

Aaron Sorkin (THE WEST WING, THE NEWSROOM)
David E. Kelly (BOSTON PUBLIC, BOSTON LEGAL, ALLY MCBEAL, CHICAGO HOPE)
Bill Prady (THE BIG BANG THEORY)
Damon Lindelof (LOST)
Steve Levitan (MODERN FAMILY)
JJ Abrams (ALIAS)
Joss Whedon (BUFF THE VAMPIRE SLAYER)
Liz Meriwether (NEW GIRL)
Dan Harmon (COMMUNITY)
Chuck Lorre (TWO AND A HALF MEN, MOM, MIKE AND MOLLY)
Hart Hanson (BONES)
David Shore (HOUSE)
Marc Cherry (DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES)
Vince Gilligan (BREAKING BAD)
Matt Weiner (MAD MEN)
David Chase (THE SOPRANOS)
