What does it take to get to a position of showrunner like you? How can an aspiring writer like me get started?

Greg responds...

Most folks have to work their way up through the ranks, starting as a freelance writer, etc.

You get started, frankly, by writing. Write a spec script to a series you like. Send it as a sample to agencies, because representation is very useful as a calling card. Remember to not send anything unless it's really good. You don't want to poison the water by sending something with your name on it that isn't your best, most mature work.
