Contribution: Showrunners and Head writers
We have published a new contribution guideline around showrunners and head writers.
A showrunner is the unofficial title given to the top-level creative decision maker and manager overseeing all episodes of an individual season of a television/episodic series. A head writer is the title (sometimes unofficial) given to the top-level writer who oversees the team of writers working on an individual season of a television/episodic series.
Although rarely credited on-screen, you can now add the Showrunner and Head writer attributes to producer and writer credits on IMDb and IMDbPro. Please see our new article explaining how to do this: Showrunners and Head Writers
