Glen Mazzara steps down as Walking dead showrunner.

9 posts in this topic

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

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.

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.
