The hiring of a new assistant triggers a power struggle between an aging TV show creator and her former protegee.

Rising-star showrunner Stacey McCreedy has one goal: to leave behind her nerd-girl origins and become a power player - like Ann Dalloni, her former mentor and current producing partner. Ann, meanwhile, is feeling her age and losing her mind. But she'll be damned if she cedes control of their hit primetime TV show to Stacey.

After Ann hires Jenna, a young actress hoping to restart her stalled career, as an assistant, the relationship between Ann and Stacey deteriorates into a blood feud. Soon, Jenna must choose whom to support and whom to betray to achieve her own ends. And Stacey will find out if she possesses the killer instinct needed to stay on top.

MEDIA REVIEWS
In The Showrunner, Moritsugu has written a compelling, suspenseful tale that bares the tawdry aspects of showbiz politics with more sophistication and drama than it really deserves. * Winnipeg Free Press *
Moritsugu pulls no punches in this delightfully twisty tale ... This Joan Collins-meets-Lauren Weisberger is a beach read no-brainer. * Booklist *
The Showrunner has all the drama of All About Eve and the attention to detail of The Devil Wears Prada. Moritsugu nails the California sun-drenched anorexic ethos. She rivals Nathanael West's fabulous descriptions of Hollywood where the hopefuls become twisted by their own ambitions. * Catherine Gildiner, bestselling author of Too Close to the Falls and Coming Ashore *
I am addicted to Kim Moritsugu's writing. I love her clever wit, her quick, light pacing, her chick lit that's written with flawless literary skill. The Showrunner is my favourite of her books yet ... the plot is so delicious and had me hooked from beginning to end. * Robin Spano, author of the Clare Vengel Undercover novels *
Once you start, you won't be able to stop as it compulsively drives you forward with its dark humor and jaw dropping moments. * Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers *
Lots of fun. * Fictional Fix *
The Showrunner is a sophisticated, compelling, and surprisingly complex drama. * Foreword Reviews *

You're in for a thoroughly entertaining ride. * Niagara Life *

“Loved this story”

This story was entertaining and unpredictable!

I enjoy stories that are about television or movie production. It’s an industry that I don’t know much about, in terms of the behind the scenes work, but I watch TV and... More
