The problem is not in the original article in Variety, only in the paraphrase
on one site. The Cinescape site, I believe, got the information right.
(Articles like those in Variety are copyrighted, so they can't repost the whole
text; instead they paraphrase, and sometimes inaccuracies slip in.)
To clarify: every show has multiple executive producers these days. Shows like
the X-Files have something like 3 or 4. But at the end of the day, only one of
these is the actual show-runner.
