The television landscape has evolved over the years into a place where it hasn’t been before, and as interest in television programs have increased, interest in the industry, the creative process, and the challenges faced by the participants in front of and behind the camera have also increased. To that end, the Hollywood Reporter often brings together industry professionals from various disciplines together for a roundtable discussion on these issues.
With prior conversations revolving around Dramatic Actresses, Dramatic Actors, Comedic Actresses, Comedic Actors, and TV Drama showrunners, the newest roundtable discussion turns the focus to Showrunners of Comedic series. Joining the conversation is Jill Soloway (currently the showrunner for Amazon’s Transparent), Jay Duplass (currently the showrunner for HBO’s Togetherness), Steve Levitan (currently the showrunner for ABC’s Modern Family), Robert Carlock (currently the showrunner for Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Kenya Barris (currently the showrunner for ABC »

Today's hour-long conversation is the Comedy Showrunner Roundtable, which includes Kenya Barris ("Black-ish"), Alec Berg ("Silicon Valley"), Robert Carlock ("The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt"), Jay Duplass ("Togetherness"), Steven Levitan ("Modern Family"), and Jill Soloway ("Transparent"). In the "raw, uncensored" conversation, the writers speak candidly about everything (almost) you'd want to know about the business, from a hit comedy showrunner's Pov. For example, a snip of Barris' contribution: "My wife pooped herself when she was having our first daughter... That was my first time having a kid, and I started apologizing to the doctors. And my wife was like, 'Are you apologizing?' And I put that on the...

But it's not all grousing for these writer-producers, who oversee some of the most impactful comedies of the year: HBO's Silicon Valley (Alec Berg, 45), Amazon's Transparent (Jill
