Hi, Peter here in Vancouver. I've worked in the industry professionally for over 27 years and am a Development Producer-Series Television. The two answers above are correct.

Producing television is a Writer/Producer game and if you are not the creative end then partner with one and be the business end.

If you want to Produce feature films then having the creative end or not doesn't matter. Producing feature films is all about the dollar and you should be studying economics (lol)..
