I am launching a new online TV network for the West Indians based in the DMV area.

Executive producer
There are four meanings for the term in North America. The showrunner is the "chief executive" in charge of everything related to the production of the show. It is the highest ranking individual who is responsible for the development and daily management of the show. Established show creators with prior writing credits are automatically given the title of executive producer, even after they depart the show. Executive producers can be showrunners, head writers, the CEO of the production company that distributes the series, or a producer on the writing staff who has climbed up the ranks.
Co-executive producer
Second in seniority to executive producer who attends writing team meetings. Most write for the series.
Supervising producer
Supervises the creative process in the writing room, and often aids in script re-writes. These people also guide new writers. They usually supervise less experienced story editors and staff writers on the writing team.
A producer can also be the writer of the episode, or a former executive producer who still writes for the show, but has since relinquished his/her duties as E.P. Since producer credits are used for individual episodes, they often require approval from the Writers Guild of America (WGA). Traditional producers, who are responsible for physical facilities, are given the credit of "produced by." Most line producers are given the title of "produced by."
A writer on the show who may not have written the episode, but contributed significantly through table reads or revisions. Co-producer credits also often require approval from the Writers Guild of America.
Coordinating producer or production coordinator
This producer manages the show's schedule and arranges the staff into teams.
Consulting producer
These producers are former executive or possibly co-executive producers, or in rare cases directors, who no longer work on the show that much. They are called upon to assist the writers, sometimes specializing in a particular subject.
Associate producer
Runs day-to-day operations.
Assistant producer
Sources contributors and stories for the program.
Chase producer
For news and talk show production, locates and schedules (or "chases") guests for interviews.
Segment producer
Writes one segment of a program.
Line producer
Manages current staff, and finds staff to hire for the production.
Field producer
Selects areas to film (outside of a television studio) and coordinates stories for a production in the field. They also form a trusting relationship with the cast/participants in order to get interviews while in the field. They may fill a number of different roles, including production manager/coordinator, videographer, and also production assistant.
Edit producer
Helps co-ordinate the edit by working with the editor and relaying information from other producers. Involved
