Showrunners to Screen in Edinburgh on Friday


Described by The Hollywood Reporter as “an intriguing behind the scenes expose of the men and women responsible for TV’s recent revolution” Showrunners will have an exclusive presentation at this year’s Guardian Edinburgh International Television Festival. Showrunners is the first ever feature length documentary film to explore the fascinating world of U.S. television showrunners and the creative forces aligned around them. These people are responsible for creating, writing and overseeing every element of production on one of the United State’s biggest exports – television drama and comedy series.

The film shows audiences the huge amount of work that goes into making sure their favourite TV series airs on time as well as the many challenges that showrunners have to overcome to make sure a new series makes it onto the schedules at all!

Featuring contributions from J.J. Abrams, Joss Whedon, Ronald D.Moore, Damon Lindelof, Bill Prady, Hart Hanson, Jane Espenson, Jonathan Nolan and many more!

Scriptwriter, Journalist and Broadcaster Andrew Collins will be chairing this screening and it will be followed by a Q&A with the film’s director Des Doyle and special guest showrunner Ronald D.Moore (Outlander, Battlestar Galactica,Carnivale, Star Trek: The Next Generation)


The Film is on at the Filmhouse at 2 this friday Aug 22
