PGA announces TV noms

'Mad Men,' '30 Rock' return as top contenders

NBC’s “30 Rock” and AMC’s “Mad Men” are in contention to repeat as TV series winners of Producers Guild Awards.

The PGA, which announced the smallscreen noms Monday, tapped “30 Rock” in the Danny Thomas episodic comedy series category to go up against a pair of Showtime skeins — “Californication” and “Weeds” — along with HBO’s “Entourage” and NBC’s “The Office.” “30 Rock” has won the trophy for two straight years.

Showtime led the network pack with four noms.

“Mad Men” has been selected in the Norman Felton episodic drama category along with AMC’s “Breaking Bad,” Showtime’s “Dexter,” ABC’s “Lost” and HBO’s “True Blood.”

Winners will be announced Jan. 24 at the 21st annual PGA Awards at the Hollywood Palladium.

The org, which reps over 4,000 producers, announced nominees for nonfiction: CBS’ “60 Minutes,” Discovery’s “The Deadliest Catch,” A&E’s “Intervention,” Bravo’s “Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D List” and Showtime’s “This American Life.” “60 Minutes” won in 2008.

In the live entertainment-competition category, bids went to CBS’ “The Amazing Race,” Fox’s “American Idol,” Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report,” Bravo’s season 5 of “Project Runway” and Bravo’s “Top Chef.” “Colbert Report” is the reigning champ in the category.
