Help Fund “Showrunners”, A Documentary Featuring Joss Whedon, Damon Lindelof, and More

by Dan Koelsch

Des Doyle has worked in the Irish film industry for over 15 years, and he is a big fan of television. His interest in the Showrunner position has lead him to make a documentary that has been two years in the making. See the trailer for Showrunners: A Documentary Film and get the details on how you can help make it happen after the break.

The documentary takes you inside the mind and lives of the people who are the creative lead of a television show and how the showrunner name has become a brand. The list of names Doyle has been able to get it is extremely impressive, and it includes not only showrunners, but also actors.

Joss Whedon – Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly

Terence Winter – Boardwalk Empire
Bill Prady – The Big Bang Theory
Hart Hanson – Bones
Jane Espenson – Once Upon A Time
Steven S. DeKnight – Spartacus

J.H. Wyman & Jeff Pinkner – Fringe
David Shore – House
