What is executive producer?

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.
