The 2015 WGC Showrunner Award
Showrunners are the writers/producers who hold the creative vision for a television series. He or she controls all creative decisions and oversees the series from development, through prep and production, to the completion of post. In other words, the showrunner is the creative force driving the series. The WGC Showrunner Award brings Canada’s best showrunners centre stage to be celebrated by their peers.
