The Role of the Showrunner
– Breaking the Mould
Who should participate?
Delivering acute analysis of the dual role – managing all departments, as well as being the creator of the vision of their show and sustaining that vision through their writing and development team.
Eight sessions, each with a different speaker, offer perspectives on their varied approaches, from the creation of the concept and pitching, through development and production. Accumulate techniques and processes to apply to your own work at home.
“Even after 20 years, you’re always learning.”
“There’s nothing more powerful to a showrunner than a truly invested writer.”
“It’s important to have people who are absolutely willing to say you’re wrong or who have a totally different perspective than you do on everything. Fresh ideas are hard to come by, and good ones are even harder.”
