What the hell does a producer do? When every production can have five different versions of them, it's no wonder this is a recurring question. Well, today we have the definitive answer as Ryan "sits down" with Yolanda T. Cochran, VP Production, Walt Disney Television/Freeform.

Yolanda brings nearly a decade and a half of knowledge from her work on such films a "Book of Eli," "The Blind Side," and "Point Break." She and Ryan chat about the various roles of the producer, why writers aren’t usually on set, how a budget is pulled together, and the current state of the industry amidst COVID-19.
