** Reg Grundy: Proprietor of Australian adaptations of American game shows, always extremely faithful to what they copied. When his company set up shop in America, they tended to have themes composed by the father-son team of Ray and Marc Ellis (who had been doing work on Creator/{{Filmation}}'s cartoons for years in the same capacity), and either aired on NBC or got ScrewedByTheNetwork.

** Creator/JackBarry-Dan Enright: Generally solid quiz formats (unless they're trying to copy something else for instance, ''Hollywood Connection'' was a blatant ''Series/MatchGame'' expy), extremely easy questions (likely over-compensation for the quiz show scandals of which they were a part in the 1950s), and a luck-based BonusRound that involves some variant of "Find X amount of [good thing] before you find [[[{{Whammy}} bad thing]]]".
** MerrillHeatter-Bob Quigley: Variations on popular games (for instance, ''Series/TheHollywoodSquares'' is based on tic-tac-toe; ''Series/{{Gambit}}'' was blackjack; and ''Series/HighRollers'' was Shut the Box). Always with brassy Stan Worth theme tunes and Kenny Williams as announcer. After Quigley left, Heatter rehashed ''Squares'' twice: first in ''Series/AllStarBlitz'' (''Squares'' meets ''Series/WheelOfFortune''), then in ''Series/{{Battlestars}}'' (''Squares'' [[AC:[[RecycledInSpace IN SPACE!]]]]). Also, Kenny Williams was no longer alive, so these had different announcers.

** Creator/JayWolpert: [[LoadsAndLoadsOfRules Ridiculously complex]] shows that often border on being the game show equivalent of {{Calvinball}}. Not surprisingly, few of his shows lasted very long.

* When Clark Johnson directs an episode in any given series, expect lots of handheld shots and shots of tangential, sometimes random but interesting events happening at the periphery of the scene. Called "Shoot the Dog" shots by the crew of the TheShield, after he excitedly insisted on filming nearby barking dog in one of the early episodes, different from the more familiar ShootTheDog.

* YasukoKobayashi, known for writing multiple Kamen Rider and Super Sentai series, has a very unique style of writing. She almost never plays tropes straight, depends on ShowDontTell and does not shy away from introducing new tropes to the Tokusatsu genre. TVtropes even has an analysis on her signature style, which can be found [[Analysis/YasukoKobayashi here]].
