Frank explores the U.S. showrunner and writers’ room system and compares it to his experience writing and producing drama series in Europe. Although the systems are very different, there are lessons for writers, script-doctors, producers and broadcasters to be learned from each. Frank goes through the process of assembling a staff for a writers room, and talks about how a show runner organizes and manages the production of a drama series. He also discusses the importance of collaboration, and how differing visions from writers, directors, producers and broadcasters are reconciled.
