Showrunners

A few years ago, we featured an early extended trailer for a documentary that was still being made called Showrunners. The project even went on to become a Kickstarter funded film, and now it's finally poised for a release at the end of October, and a new trailer has arrived. For those who don't know, a showrunner is someone who keeps the wheels spinning on your favorite TV shows. Often times they are both a writer and executive producer on the series in question, an this documentary talks to some of the best in the business from Joss Whedon to Shawn Ryan, all talking about the day-to-day work of making a TV series. Watch!

Here's the final trailer for Des Doyle's Showrunners, originally from Apple:

Directed by Des Doyle, Showrunners is a feature length documentary film about the fascinating world of television showrunners – the writers and producers of US television drama and comedy series. Featuring interviews with showrunners, actors, network execs, casting directors and many more. It is an in depth exploration of the making of modern American television. Such names from the world of TV include Damon Lindelof ("Lost"), Joss Whedon ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer"), Jonathan Nolan ("Person of Interest") and more. After being Kickstarted in 2012, the documentary hits iTunes and limited theaters on October 31st.

    No Vince Gilligan or Matthew Weiner, but we have Joss Whedon who created some of the most childish and stupid series ever. When the immature take over I guess...

      I agree. I really didn't like Firefly. :( I did enjoy the movie Serenity though.

      I liked Firefly, but yes....Joss Whedon is insanely overrated.

    Most people have no idea what showrunners are. Looks like that won't be changing any time soon.
  • Really looking forward to watching this.

    I love and need more documentaries like this. Getting into writing for the last year. Motivation helps.

    As someone who works in the industry I am still blown away by the lack of females in top creative and executive positions. It's still such a boys club.
