Executive Producer

An executive producer (EP) is a producer who was not involved in any technical aspects of the film making or music process in the original definition, but who was still responsible for the overall production. Today, however, the title has become ambiguous, particularly in feature films. Although directors outrank the authority of an executive producer in films, it is the exact opposite in television. In this case, executive producers—or more specifically, showrunners—are in charge of the writing staff on scripted shows. Nonetheless, each executive producer title has a completely different meaning in television and not all are—though most usually are—affiliated with the writing team.

Famous quotes containing the word executive:

    More than ten million women march to work every morning side by side with the men. Steadily the importance of women is gaining not only in the routine tasks of industry but in executive responsibility. I include also the woman who stays at home as the guardian of the welfare of the family. She is a partner in the job and wages. Women constitute a part of our industrial achievement.
    Herbert Hoover (1874–1964)
