On Saturday night I found myself at the Producers Guild Awards alongside Real Time's head writer, Billy Martin. Billy and our other executive producers, Sheila Griffiths, Scott Carter, Dean Johnsen and, of course, Bill Maher, were all nominated for the award (and we couldn't be prouder).
Never mind who won in our category ('The Colbert Report'), I had a great time learning about what it is, exactly, that producers do: they try to explain to other people what producers do. Really, though, they do much more than that. You'll see.
