Alex and Nick invite Des Doyle, director of the Showrunners documentary, and behind several writing programs for Screen Skills Ireland, to discuss international TV writing and exporting the showrunner model to other markets. How does the American showrunner model differ from the way television is written internationally? How do you create that setup globally? How does auteur theory impact TV?
