The Hollywood Reporter Names the 50 Power Showrunners of 2013
The Schaffers’ fantasy football comedy removed all doubts about retaining its audience when it moved to new network FXX. It held on to an impressive 94 percent of its viewership from last season’s premiere, even though the new network had launched just three days earlier in nearly 20 million fewer homes.
Husband-and-wife team Jeff, 43, and Jackie, 39, also oversee one of the most prolific casts in the business: Mark Duplass (who’s married to League co-star Katie Aselton) is a busy filmmaker and movie actor (this fall’s JFK pic Parkland); Nick Kroll has his own series on Comedy Central; and Paul Scheer created and stars in Adult Swim’s NTSF:SD:SUV and has a network comedy vehicle in development.
