The film took 4 years to make - starting in September 2010 with principal photography completed in November 2012. With over 100 hours of footage shot it took the filmmakers a year to edit the film and then almost another year to complete all the clearances and releases required. As the film features so many Showrunners who have worked on a large number of different TV series over the years legal work involved dealing with almost every Studio, Network and Production Company in Hollywood. This massive task was undertaken by Director Des Doyle, Producer John Wallace and Clearance Co-Ordinator Julie Ryan. See more »
A documentary that explores the world of U.S. television showrunners and the creative forces aligned around them.
Although I am a huge fans of movies and have a rather solid understanding of their production and creation, I must confess I never really thought about television. I pictured it being similar, though on a smaller scale. This documentary shows that my belief is not accurate: in many ways, television is on a much larger scale, and certainly requires a greater capacity for creativity when new ideas have to be generated each week.
Touching on "Lost" was great, because it was a show many people (myself included) were addicted to. There is still debate over whether the creators really knew where the story was headed, and how much had to be invented along the way. Few, if any, of the fans were satisfied... could this have been rectified?
