Don’t mind me if I sound jaded or critical, but I find most movies and TV boring and generally dismissible. There are, however, rare gems, which provide much-needed relief from the more common superficiality that fills most broadcast hours. Today’s project is about the stories behind those stories – those special few that warrant following. Don’t know what a “showrunner” is? Then it’s time to check out the film and look behind the scenes at the people who…run the shows. Back Showrunners, the documentary, before December 25.
Showrunners: A Documentary Film is the first feature documentary that delves into the creative and chaotic world of the showrunner. You’ll be taken inside the lives and minds of todays top TV Showrunners, who have opened up the world of your favorite TV shows to us and given access to their writers rooms, their production sets while filming, production meetings, edit bays as well as on to the red carpet. As well, we’ll take you behind the scenes at special events like ComicCon and WonderCon with featured showrunners and actors from such beloved series as Lost, Bones, Boardwalk Empire, Revenge, Fringe, Big Bang Theory, House, Person of Interest, Sons of Anarchy, Firefly, Battlestar Galactica, Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, Castle, Spartacus, House of Lies & Once Upon a Time.
