This is a course discussing the different roles of the television producer and show runners.

Students wear many television producer hats through the quarter, and will explore those roles in relation to different scripted and non-scripted formats. Examining and performing various tasks like budgets, staffing, and scheduling will give students a comprehensive view of the needs and responsibilities of different producers. Additional consideration will be given to the on-set roles and responsibilities of the showrunner in the television production environment. The class will culminate in the creation of short promo segments of various styles of television shows. PREREQUISITES: FILM 110, TV 306 OR TV 307
