The Hollywood Reporter Names the 50 Power Showrunners of 2013
The most winning series at the Emmys this year wasn’t Mad Men, Breaking Bad or Homeland, but HBO’s four-year-old Prohibition drama: It nabbed five statues, including a shocker win for supporting actor Bobby Cannavale. Maybe it’s having Martin Scorsese as his executive producer, or his enviable Sopranos legacy, but Winter, 53 — who also penned Scorsese’s forthcoming awards-bait feature The Wolf of Wall Street, starring Leonardo DiCaprio — has never wavered in putting the methodical artistry of his series above all else, earning 2.5 million viewers for the fourth-season premiere and a coveted fifth-season renewal.
