Everyone Has a Boss

Regular readers may have noticed that I don’t like being told what to do.  It’s a combination of youthful hubris  and laziness-disguised-as-hubris.  (“I know a better way to do this!  I’ll not do it!”)

Someday, I’ll be a showrunner, and everyone will have to do things my way. Directors will bow to the writer! The production office will stop wasting paper!  There will be no more birthday cakes!

At least, that’s the dream.

I don't think I can add anything that would make this picture funnier.
Seriously, this is the first image that popped up when I googled “dream.”

The reality is, everyone has a boss.

The person who has the final say is the person with the money.  In television, that’s the executive overseeing the production.  Of course, he has a boss, in the vice president in charge of production, whose boss is the president of the network.  The network, in turn, is owned by a conglomerate, which is owned by stockholders.

 

 

 

 

Credit where credit's due: Disney is still Disney.
Makes sense to me!

 

This blog is probably the closest I’ll ever come to being my own boss.

  1. Streetlights has been around for nearly twenty years — I remember working with some of their PA trainees on commercials back in the early to mid 90’s. They were good kids, too — I hope they made it further up the Hollywood food chain.
