Showrunners: A Documentary Film Trailer with Joss Whedon and J.J. Abrams

We all have our favorite TV shows, but have you ever wondered what happens in the writers rooms and on the set? What doesn't make it onto the screen? The feature documentary Showrunners: A Documentary Film pulls back the curtain for the first time, illuminating how shows go from the page to the screen according to Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly), J.J. Abrams (Lost, Alias, Fringe), Bill Prady (The Big Bang Theory), Hart Hanson (Bones), Damon Lindelof (Lost), Kurt Sutter (Sons of Anarchy), Jonathan Nolan (Person of Interest) and dozens more top television creatives.

Showrunners: A Documentary Film is the first ever feature length documentary to explore the fascinating world of US 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 takes audiences behind the scenes of the chaotic world of the showrunner to reveal the incredible amount of work that goes into making sure their favorite TV series airs on time as well as the challenges that showrunners must overcome to ensure a new series makes it onto the schedules at all.
