Pics From TV Guide Magazine's Showrunner Panel at Wondercon
TV Guide Magazine was in force at Wondercon this Saturday in Anaheim, and I got to moderate one of the best panels of the convention (if I do say so myself!). Our TV Guide Magazine TV Showrunner Panel, which we organized in honor of the magazine's 60th anniversary, boasted some of TV's heaviest hitters: Greg Plageman (Person of Interest), Jeff Davis (Teen Wolf), Remi Aubuchon (Falling Skies), Glen Mazzara (The Walking Dead), Steven Molaro (The Big Bang Theory) and Julie Plec (The Vampire Diaries). In a wide-ranging chat, we talked about everything from how and when to kill off major characters, to when to bring romantic interests together and how to walk the tightrope of network content standards. We also chatted about the showrunners' TV influences ("Hill Street Blues" was a popular one), and they all also gave us a few nuggets of storyline scoop.
My colleague Rob Moynihan summed up the panel here. And here are a few more pics from the panel, snapped by TV Guide Magazine's west coast photo editor, Geraldine Agoncillo.
