With promises of a brand new type of drama and a good look into the world of the variety entertainment backstage, 'Producers' has made its start and it has done so with mixed reactions. Featuring a popular cast and well known creators, including Kim Soo-hyeon-I and writer Park Ji-eun of hit series 'My Love from the Star', it has inevitably attracted attention and certain expectations. At the moment, it is not meeting those, whether this is good or bad.
The first question would be, is this series something new? The answer based on the first two episodes is 'somewhat'. Drama and film have handled the subject of entertainment and its nature behind the lens before, but variety is getting the spotlight here.

The show also truly focuses on the workplace for the most part, a departure from the usual focus on interpersonal relationships we see in series.
