Showrunning in Europe: Who Runs the Show?


European Showrunner Think Tank IV
Showrunning in Europe: Who Runs the Show?

Joining forces with the Nederlands Film Festival, the upcoming edition of the European Showrunner Think Thank focuses on writer and showrunner Jeppe Gjervig Gram (»Borgen«, »Follow the Money«). In an exclusive interview, Jeppe will share insights into his personal approach to showrunning, how it is influenced by the traditional Danish showrunning model, and how it is challenged by recent changes in the series industry.

In the second part of this on-site session in Utrecht, showrunners Sanne Nuyens (»Hotel Beau Sejour«) and Pieter Bart Korhuis (»Dirty Lines«), will join him for a panel discussion chaired by Dutch writer and actor Lemba de Miranda. Together they will dive once more into the US showrunner model and investigate how this model has been adjusted to the European series market in recent years, and what is needed for establishing a truly European showrunner model in the present climate.
