The Producers Guild of America has added Ted Turner to its speaker lineup for the second annual Produced By Conference, to be held June 4-6 at Fox Studios.Conference co-chairs Gale Anne Hurd and Rachel Klein announced Wednesday that Turner’s session has been set for June 5. Turner established the United Nations Foundation a dozen years ago, which entered into a partnership with the United Nations called the U.N. Creative Community Outreach Initiative with the goals of peace and raising awareness of critical global issues through entertainment. The U.N. Foundation is also partnering with the PGA to sponsor a separate June 5 workshop entitled the “Power of the Producer to Affect Social Change” to highlight some of the work the U.N. is doing and ways producers can help shine a spotlight on the world’s toughest challenges.
