A showrunner (or colloquially a helmer[1]) is the top-level executive producer of a television series production,[2][3][4][5] who outranks other creative personnel, including episode directors, in contrast to feature films, in which the director has creative control over the production, and the executive producer's role is limited to investing.[6]
