[TV] Two leaders

The creative team for a TV show has two leadership positions. The CREATOR is the person with final responsiblity for the direction of the show (tone, ideas, character). The SHOW-RUNNER is a project manager. They concentrate on knocking down all the obstacles to getting the scripts completed on time.

Ideally the Creator and the Show-runner should be good friends and communicate easily with each other. They should share the same vision for the show. Oh, and I guess you don't need to separate the two functions out if you're a genius.
