A Producer is the overall manager in charge of a television production. They have near-total responsibility for the development, budget, casting, style and staging of the production although they almost always are answerable to more senior management and many of the day-to-day duties are delegated to other staffs, principally the director of a given edition or episode of the programme but also casting directors, set designers, costume and make-up designers and production managers. Their liaison with the directors or owners of a television station can often be through an Executive Producer. In the US, it is often the latter role that manages day-to-day production and in some UK productions, this has been a growing trend.

Emmerdale has had nineteen individuals who have held the role of producer. At times there has been no credited producer and in the interim the role has been carried out by the Executive Producer.
