• Watch the Hollywood Reporter’s comedy roundtable

    The unsung hero of the television comedy is the showrunner. These behind-the-scenes fixtures are often responsible for whether or not a show works at all, based on the decisions they make about characters and storylines– among other things, of course.

    Needless to say, the Hollywood Reporter Emmy showrunner roundtable is a must-watch for anyone interested in comedy, television, or – this year – Charlie Sheen. Check it below.

    You can check out more comedy roundtable videos at The Hollywood Reporter.
