Producer is a crew position in television. The term producer refers to a specific middle level of seniority under the rules of the Producers Guild of America. However, the term producers can be used to refer to crew members from the most junior associate producers to the most senior executive producers. A producer is traditionally responsible for managing a production and ensuring that it maintains a well budget while meeting the vision of the writers and director. In television screen writers are often credited as producers although they may only have limited involvement with the traditional role. A producer in the traditional sense typically receives the "produced by" credit.
