The Hollywood Reporter Names the 50 Power Showrunners of 2013
Since 2009, CBS’ critical darling has provided the network with something many of its other shows have not: cachet. The legal drama has notched an impressive number of awards, including a Peabody, four Emmys, a Golden Globe and two SAGs. Holding court on a busy Sunday night, the husband-and-wife team has managed to sustain a smartly written and performed hour-long drama that often earns comparisons to similarly acclaimed cable efforts. Although they were shut out of the recent Emmy race, Michelle, 51, and Robert, 53, have the admiration of industry heavyweights such as Vince Gilligan, who told THR in the spring that they were the showrunners he most admired.
