* ''Webcomic/{{Nebula}}'' is an unusual example of a webcomic fitting this trope-- the comic is made by seven people in an art collective. Five of them (Steven, Mango, Windy, Toc, and Rook) are the artists and two (James and Haik) are the writers.

* Almost every Hollywood film goes through a serialized form of this. The original writers will do rewrites on a script, then be fired and replaced by writers who will do their own rewrites, then ''those'' writers will be fired for some executive's chosen writer to do more rewrites, then the original writers might be hired back to do another rewrite to fix everything that got broken in the last dozen drafts, ''and that's before shooting starts''. When this goes well you get a quality (or at least profitable) film, and all the writers get to engage in [[DuelToTheDeath arbitration for the "Written By" credit]] (and the pile of cash that comes with it). When this goes poorly you get DevelopmentHell.

* ''Oh! Calcutta!'' had sketches written by (among others) JohnLennon and SamuelBeckett.
* ''MysteryScienceTheater3000'' was written by basically everybody working on it. Mike Nelson was referred to as Head Writer, which in practice meant he put together everyone's quips into a single script.
* ''FamilyGuy'', although that doesn't stop people from [[ScapegoatCreator blaming]] SethMacFarlane for everything that they find wrong with the show.

** Though to be fair, he's still in charge of the show's production, so it's not like he couldn't fix [[DudeNotFunny certain]] [[CharacterDerailment niggling]] [[StrawmanPolitical problems]] if he wanted.
