PGA will add TV gamer/reality kudos

Guild to announce its nominees Jan. 16

HOLLYWOOD — The Producers Guild of America has created a new award to cover work on reality, informational and game series programming.

Prize becomes the PGA’s fifth competitive award, joining producer of year award for film, and three for TV: longform, comedy series and drama series.

“In our continuing effort to acknowledge great producing in all of its forms, we are excited that we are now recognizing the best produced shows in reality, informational and game series,” said awards co-chairs Bruce Cohen and Debra Hill.

Guild, which has about 1,800 members, also announced that its board has approved a resolution that declines eligibility for PGA honors to all productions that originally telecast their program without crediting the producing team.

The PGA will announce its nominations Jan. 16 and hold its 14th annual awards ceremonies March 2 at the Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles.

Org has previously announced it will honor Jack Valenti with the Milestone Award; Robert Evans with the David O. Selznick lifetime achievement award; George Lucas with the Vanguard Award for outstanding achievement in new media and technology; and Rita Wilson with the Visionary Award, to honor work demonstrating a unique or uplifting quality, for “My Big Fat Greek Wedding.”
