TV from the Inside
On any scripted TV show the showrunner is king. It's their show and they'll decide where it'll go (while managing their writing staff, overseeing production, coordinating contracts and liaising with the network- for starters). Watch this video for one-of-a-kind insights from 7 of TV's current showrunners- you'll never take your favourite show for granted again. Highlights include how much Frank Darabont (The Walking Dead) loves his show and everyone he works with as well the mere presence of TV titan John Wells (Shameless, The West Wing, millions of other things) and my current favourite showrunner Jason Katims (Friday Night Lights, Parenthood).
