TV producer draws Producers Guild kudos

The Producers Guild of America has tapped live-event producer and director Don Mischer to receive its Norman Lear Achievement Award in Television.

The PGA said the presentation to Mischer will mark the first time it’s honored a live-television producer with the Norman Lear accolade.

Kudo will be presented to Mischer at the 23rd annual Producers Guild Awards ceremony on Jan. 21 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

“Don Mischer is an extraordinarily talented producer whose work is among the best and most watched entertainment in the world,” said Producers Guild Awards co-chairs Paula Wagner and Michael Manheim. “His ability to consistently deliver live-event productions of the highest caliber is unmatched in this industry. We look forward to honoring Don for his remarkable achievements.”

The 2011 recipients of the Norman Lear Award were Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman.

Previous recipients include Dick Wolf, Jerry Bruckheimer, John Wells, Lorne Michaels, Bud Yorkin, Carsey-Werner-Mandabach, David L. Wolper, Don Hewitt, Garry K. Marshall, Aaron Spelling, Steven Bochco, David E. Kelley, Mark Burnett and Norman Lear.
