I doubt Erin has that much pull as an EP. If she did, Elizabeth would’ve actually had something to do this season. There were episodes that made me wonder if she was still the main character.
I just finished The Durrell’s final season. When they renewed her contract, they made Keeley Hawes an EP and that upped their total EPs to four. Two head producers, the guy who writes all the episodes, and Keeley. Although I know Keeley worked hard and took it seriously and not just as a vanity title.
My point to mentioning The Durrell’s is that it sure was noticeable when WCTH came back and there were a billion producers. I wish I had counted.
