The Role of the Showrunner
SHOWRUNNING FORENSICS

Our webinar series THE ROLE OF THE SHOWRUNNER was launched in 2020 to ensure insights into showrunning continued in our services and particularly that they were accessible on line. 

Each of the leading Showrunners, Executive Producers, Directors and Creative Producers featured below shared their creative process in live one-hour sessions.  Topics they dissected included to the writing and collaborative process, addressing the creative and managerial role of the Showrunner, as well as highlighting the tricky paths through development, adaptation and production in the global marketplace.  

The unique value of the live sessions lies in providing an online forum for attendees to directly ask their questions of these international trailblazers.  We greatly appreciate the access and insights provided by all the drama series professionals who have taken part.
