The release of the trailer for Showrunners couldn’t come at a more perfect time—right on the heels of the trailer for Page One, about the media desk of The New York Times. Page One covers the now age-old battle between print and new media. Ignoring the fact that Page One seems an odd title for a movie largely about one desk (the title references the meeting had every morning at the Times to discuss the important stories of the day, featured on the hardcopy first page and homepage of the site), these films are not that different.
They follow people (white men, by the looks of the trailers) talking about the changing landscape of their given area in media. Arguably, Showrunners looks a little sexier than Page One; it interviews the writers and creators of our most popular television shows. And of the two, television is probably the more flourishing of mediums.
