Showrunner is a term originating in the United States television industry referring to the person who is responsible for the day-to-day operation of a television series—although such persons are credited as executive producers. The showrunner is at the opposite end of the staff hierarchy from runners, who are the most junior members of the production team, though sometimes showrunners are called runners for short. The term is also occasionally applied to people in the television industries of other countries. The duties of a showrunner often combine those traditionally assigned to the writer, executive producer and script editor.
