Guilds form new alliance

Orgs to strengthen producer roles

After months of talks, the Producers Guild of America and the American Assn. of Producers have formed a “strategic partnership” between the two organizations.

The affiliation is intended to “combat the devaluation of the producer’s role and function by broadcast networks and studios and to continue the fight against the proliferation of unjustifiable producer credits,” according to a statement Monday from both outfits.

The PGA, formed in 1950, has approximately 500 active members and 1,000 affiliated members, primarily in motion pictures. It describes itself as “fighting for and protecting the integrity, credits and creative rights of its members.” Its members include a large number of high-profile Hollywood producers.

The AAP, founded in 1983, has more than 400 television professionals as members, from production coordinators to exec producers.

“We’re a networking and educational organization,” said AAP’s co-chair, Tim Gibbons, producer of “Ripley’s Believe It or Not,” a new TBS series for 2000. “We offer seminars and networking opportunities to enhance the TV producer’s career.”

Neither organization performs collective bargaining chores for its members.

“As we continued to raise industry awareness of the issues that are of critical importance to producers, it became obvious that a formal affiliation between the PGA and AAP was imperative,” said PGA president Thom Mount. “An alliance between our two organizations not only increases our presence in terms of size and resources, but it advances our common issues and concerns and strengthens our presence within the Hollywood community.”
