Running the Show

Overseeing a show entails a lot of responsibility, but the time and energy that goes into creating one is extremely rewarding. As the show travels from an idea into production to become a polished product, showrunners assume many different roles throughout this process. Showrunners will discuss their role in the show and on set, how they participate in the writers’ room, and their day-to-day duties during production.

Must have an AFF Producers, Conference, Weekend, or Lone Star Badge for entry.
