Producer’s Guid Of America Announces “Producers Mashup” a New Networking Event At 9th Annual Produced By Conference In Los Angeles

The Producers Guild of America (PGA) announced today the launch of “Producers Mashup,” a new mentoring and networking event within the 9th annual Produced by Conference (PBC) in Los Angeles. The inaugural event gives conference attendees the chance to network and ask direct questions of a variety of veteran producers and development executives. Confirmed “Producers Mashup” mentors to date include: Karen Bailey, Fred Baron, Ian Bryce, John Canning, Stacey Carr, Dustin Davis, Justin Falvey, Lucy Fisher, David Friendly, Mackenzie Gabriel-Vaught, Tim Gibbons, Richard Gladstein, Jeff Grosvenor, John Hadity, Mark Johnson, Barry Josephson, Courtney A. Kemp, Chris Moore, Jonathan Murray, Nadine Rajabi, Michael Seitzman and Chris Thomes. PBC takes place Saturday, June 10 and Sunday, June 11, and is hosted by Twentieth Century Fox on its studio lot in Century City, CA.

“Producers Mashup” is specifically scheduled for Sunday, June 11 in the afternoon and features four distinct tracks — Feature Film, Scripted Television, Unscripted Television and Digital Media — seating a small group of participants at a table with a mentoring producer or executive, during which time the group will have 15 minutes to ask questions. When time is up, mentors rotate to another table and each group of participants receives guidance from a new mentor.  Each table will have the opportunity to meet with three mentors over the course of the event, including at least one producer and one development exec. This new event is not for “pitching” project ideas – the PGA is offering PBC attendees unique access to knowledge from among the best producers in the business.

“PGA members requested more interactive networking opportunities with top-level producers and executives, so the ‘Producers Mashup’ was created with them in mind. This new program exemplifies the Guild’s passionate commitment to educating and building a vital producing community, and we’re proud to introduce it at the Produced By Conference for the first time this year,” said Vance Van Petten, National Executive Director and COO of the Producers Guild.
