Thought this needed its own thread this is the second show runner to leave The Walking Dead over "creative differences" Kurt Stutter creator of Sons of Anarchy had this to say

[quote]AMC is run by small-minded, bottom-line thinkers who have no appreciation or gratitude for the effort of its creative personnel. Time and time again we see events like what happened today with Glen Mazzara. They continue to disrespect writers, poo on their audience and bury their network. Mazzara took the work-in-progress that was “Walking Dead” and turned it into a viable TV show with a future. Without him, that future is dim. Showrunners are not development executives, we’re not cookiecutter douchebags that you plug into a preexisting model. TWD will suffer. Even Zombies need consistency. “Mad Men” and “Breaking Bad” will be gone soon. So will AMC.[/quote]

i dunno, everyone threw a bitch fit when the previous showrunner left, and it turned out for the best.

i'll wait and see.

I just hope that they continue the break neck pace of this season with whoever takes the reigns next. I would like to know where he wanted to take the show and why AMC disagreed though. The obvious next step for season 4 would be Fears the Hunters and the Alexandria Safe Zone storylines, but that I'm honestly not even sure that they'll follow that since they'd pretty much be caught up with the comics after one season of it. I'd really like to see them branch off and do something new for a season and then end up in Alexandria eventually.

Basically the person that maps out and controls the direction of the show. Most of the time the person is also head writer/executive producer.
