Michelle King: That's assuming any of us talk to people outside the business. (Laughs.) I don't think most of us leave the office much.
Matt Nix: I say writer. If they're curious, I say writer-producer. If they're really curious, writer, producer, casting.

Nix: You end up sounding like a douchebag if you say "I'm the manager."
Daniel Zelman: I lead with writer. The other stuff would be impossible to explain. Really what I feel like what I do is put out fires constantly. And it would be hard to describe what those fires are and what goes into putting them out. Sometimes I start a few of my own, as well.
