Tyler Perry, Issa Rae & Michaela Coel named “Hollywood’s 50 Most Powerful TV Showrunners of 2020”
Hollywood Reporter has yet again released its annual 50 most powerful showrunners in television list!
This year’s list spotlight 50 writers and producers with scripted series that aired original episodes between September 2019 and September 2020. According to Hollywood Reporter, this year’s list is based on the “relative to slates, deal size, ratings, value to platform and studio, cultural impact and awards.”
The list was led by people like Tyler Perry, Issa Rae, Michaela Coel, and a host of others.
If there’s a silver lining to this supremely bizarre year, it’s that the appetite for scripted programming endures. From such buzzy breakouts as Michaela Coel’s I May Destroy You and Tony McNamara’s The Great to the offerings of prolific uber-creators Tyler Perry and Greg Berlanti, even a pandemic and the recent spate of un-renewals can’t slow the content race. And in its annual survey of TV’s most influential players — those in-demand writer-producers who kept the pipeline full with original episodes over the past 12 months.
