The Comedy Doctor on producers

A member asks: I'm lucky enough to have had production company interest in a sitcom I've been working on. Long story short, the project continues to progress, but the company has now put it in the hands of a producer whose previous work I don't really rate - a decision I don't get a say in. Essentially my two options seem to be: work with this producer and see my project make it to broadcast but potentially with the humour changed... or walk away entirely, with nothing to show for all my efforts. What should I do?

Firstly, thank you...
