Executive producer is one of the top positions in the making of a commercial entertainment product. Depending on the medium, the executive producer may be concerned with management accounting or associated with legal issues. In films, the executive producer contributes to the film's budget and their involvement depends on the project with some securing funds and others getting involved in the filmmaking process. In films, executive producers may finance the film, participate in the creative effort, or work on set, their responsibilities vary from funding or attracting investors into the movie project to legal, marketing and supervising capacities. Executive producers vary in involvement and power; some executive producers have hands-on control over every aspect of production, some supervise the producers of a project, while others are involved in name only. The crediting of executive producers in the film industry has risen over time. In the mid-to-late 1990s, there were an average of just under two executive producers per film.
In 2000, the number jumped to 2.5. In 2013, there were an average of 4.4 executive producers per film, compared with 3.2 producers. In television, an executive producer supervises the creative content and the financial aspects of a production; some writers, like Stephen J. Cannell, Tina Fey, Ryan Murphy, have worked as both the creator and the producer of the same TV show. In case of multiple executive producers on a TV show, the one outranking the others is called the showrunner, or the leading executive producer. In recorded music, record labels distinguish between a record producer; the executive producer is responsible for business decisions and more organizing the recordings along with the music producer, whereas the record producer produces the music. Sometimes the executive producer organises the recording and selects recording-related crew, such as sound engineers and session musicians. In the video game industry, the title "executive producer" is not well-defined, it may refer to an external producer working for the publisher.
For example, in 2012, Jay-Z was announced as executive producer for NBA 2K13. His role consisted of appearing in an introduction, picking songs for the game's soundtrack and contributing to the design of its in-game menus "and other visual elements". An executive radio producer helps create and implement strategies to improve product and ratings.
