Advertisements So I see quite a bit of this on TV (and movies): "From the Executive Producer of <show> comes <new show name>" So how much influence does an executive producer actually have on a show? I would think that an EP (I'm too lazy to keep typing executive producer ) would look for shows that will make him money, not necessarily shows that are similarly themed to the point that I would like everything an EP might produce. Now, if it's from the CREATORS of a show I like, or the writing team, then I could see that influencing my decision on what I might watch. Jerry Bruckheimer is a perfect example. He's EP of shows like CSI, but he's also EP of The Amazing Race....two completely different types of shows. I like TAR but can't stand CSI. So why would I even care that Bruckheimer is the EP of either of him enough for it to influence my decision to watch something he is involved in? I think it's just an advertising gimmick.
