Producers Guild Unveils TV Nominees

The Producers Guild of America has nominated “Better Call Saul,” “Homeland,” “House of Cards,” “Mad Men,” “Inside Amy Schumer” and “Veep” for its top TV awards.

The winner will be announced on Jan. 23 at the Century Plaza at the PGA’s 27th annual awards show, based on voting from the 6,000 members of the PGA.

None of the three most recent winners — the final season of AMC’s “Breaking Bad,” Netflix’s “Orange is the New Black” and FX’s “Fargo” — were nominated Tuesday.

ABC’s “Modern Family,” which won the PGA award four times in a row before losing to “Orange Is the New Black” this year, was the only network show nominated in the comedy and drama categories.

“Modern Family” and “Veep” were the only repeat nominees in the comedy category. “Game of Thrones,”  and “House of Cards” were the repeaters in the drama category.

The PGA will announce its 10 feature film nominees on Jan. 5.
