The event will be held for the third consecutive year at Time Warner Center in New York. The conference will present a pair of in-depth discussions — “Triple Threat: Conversation with Tina Fey” and “Dying is Easy. Comedy is Hard.” with Rock and Red Hour Films’ Stuart Cornfeld.
Speakers at the 2015 edition of Produced By: New York included Michael Moore, Alejandro G. Iñárritu, Effie Brown, Barbara Hall, John Hoffman, Navid Khonsari, Robert & Michelle King, Michael London, Tom McCarthy, Lydia Dean Pilcher, Peter Saraf, Darren Star, and Christine Vachon.
“Tina Fey and Chris Rock are each living proof that you can be an excellent producer while being the funniest person in the room,” said PGA presidents Lori McCreary and Gary Lucchesi. “The PGA is thrilled to welcome two of the city’s most practiced and proven artists to Produced By: New York. We are looking forward to each speaker’s unique insight into their careers as actors, writers, storytellers and the path which led to them becoming producers.”
The PGA has over 6,000 members. The trade organization held its eighth annual West Coast “Produced By” conference in June at Sony Pictures.
