COW Blogs : Bob Gillen's Blog : Reality TV Producer Leslie Coffee - Part two
The responsibilities behind the title “producer” will vary in reality television. Leslie Coffee, whose experience includes Police Women of Broward County, Police Women of Dallas, and Weird Travels, talks about the roles of story producer, field producer, and supervising producer.

“The responsibilities can differ,” Coffee says, “depending on the type of producer position, as well as the particular show or project involved. I mostly work as a story, field, or supervising producer on projects.”

Story Producer
“As a Story Producer, my responsibilities cover taking the story from pitch to post. After getting the initial story information, I’m in charge of finding and contacting participants for interviews, and then pre-interviewing those subjects prior to the field shoot.”

Coffee’s pre-interviewing lays the groundwork for strong on camera material. “This gives me the opportunity to find out the facts in advance for a more cohesive and better-told story. The subject may say something you had no idea happened, or correct any mistaken information. Oftentimes, this is also the point where a relationship is being established. You want the interview subject to like you, trust you, and WANT to tell their story to you.”
