Personal Quote:

Over the past two or three years, it has become much more common for writers to be appointed executive producer on their own shows - a role I have recently taken on myself. This gives the writer greatly increased control over their work, including seats at the monitor and in the editing suite. This almost never used to happen, but it does now, and it pays huge creative dividends.
