I think it would depend on whats trying to be implemented. You could def replace the producer with multi-disciplined resource that creates content as well as manages the minor production tracking involved.

Good point - teams can be made up of a variety of skills sets, not necessarily producers, designers, programmers - multi-disciplined folks, in fact, would fit the bill perhaps better than a team of specialists.

btw: there are some really interesting programs putting their hands-up for consideration. It's going to make it a tough decision for us.
