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.

Coronation Street has had thirty-two individuals who have held the role of producer. Several of these people have held the position on more than one occasion and at times there has been no credited producer and in the interim the role has been carried out by the Executive Producer.

Note: Episode 3340 (3rd February 1992) had David Plowright credited in the role of producer for that one single episode. This was in line with all Granada Television programmes broadcast that day and was a last-minute amendment made by staff in a form of protest at Plowright being forced off the Granada board by new chairman Gerry Robinson. As Plowright did not actually carry out any producing duties on the programme in the strictest sense of the term, he is not included in the list below.
