Amy Pascal, Donald De Line Named Producers Guild Awards Chairs

Amy Pascal and Donald De Line have been named chairs of the 2017 Producers Guild Awards. The date has also been set for the awards show’s next installment, to be held Jan. 28, 2017 at the Beverly Hilton.

The Producers Guild has also made a significant change to the guidelines for television categories, moving from broadcast season to calendar year. To make sure that no show is cut out in the shift, the 2017 awards will feature an extended eligibility period for most shows — June 1, 2015 to Dec. 31, 2016. Long form series and specials as well as sports programming already run on a calendar year eligibility period and will experience no change.

De Line’s producing credits include “The Italian Job” and “I Love You Man.” He is a producer on the upcoming “Ready Player One” from Steven Spielberg and “Going in Style” from Zach Braff. Pascal is the former co-chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment and former chairman of the company’s motion-picture group. She is a producer on the upcoming “Ghostbusters” and “Spider-Man: Homecoming.”

Submissions are now open for the 2017 awards. The timeline for those awards is below:
