All-night meetings, nonstop stress and action. That’s the life of a television variety show producer trying to put together a hit show and gain ratings while handling pressures from difficult stars and corporate executives who breathe down their necks. Baek Seung Chan (Kim Soo Hyun) is a fresh new producer-director (PD) who gave up law school to work in the exciting variety show division of a major television network. He works alongside the more seasoned veteran PDs Tak Ye Jin (Gong Hyo Jin), a no-nonsense hot-shot who gets things done her way, and Ra Joon Mo (Cha Tae Hyun), who is still waiting for his breakout hit series. As they work with temperamental stars like Cindy (IU), a famous singer, can the PDs please everybody and get their jobs done? “Producer” is a 2015 South Korean drama series directed by Seo Soo Min.
