My year as a Showrunner, on The Story Showrunner Training Program, was hard work, long days, a lot of responsibility and a dash of anxiety. But I loved it. As the Showrunner you get almost full approval on budget-and crew-decisions, you are responsible of leading process from the writers room and all the way to finished product. It was a way for me to try things, to make mistakes, and to learn. It has given me practical tools to use in my screenwriting, and I am grateful of having been selected Showrunner in one of the few Showrunner Training programs in the world.
