Participants gain valuable insights into the current state of the industry and learn "insider tips" to help navigate the complex layers of film and television production.
The PGA East Group Mentoring sessions will be an ongoing bi-monthly series, featuring accomplished producers in all medias and genres. Any PGA member in good standing is welcome to RSVP but each event is limited to 12 members.
PGA member Richard Heus is currently producing "The Big C," Showtime's new hit series, starring Laura Linney, now entering its second season. He recently completed "Body of Proof," a new drama for ABC's 2010-2011 season after producing the series "Ugly Betty" in New York for ABC.
After finishing graduate school in Communication at Stanford, Heus produced documentaries for various PBS outlets. He then moved on to make movies such as "Darrow," starring Kevin Spacey for American Playhouse, "Christmas on Division Street," with Hume Cronyn for CBS and "Race the Sun," starring Halle Berry for Tristar Pictures. Since then he has produced award winning films such as "Serving in Silence," with Glenn Close and Judy Davis for NBC and the twenty-hour mini series entitled "Steven Spielberg Presents: TAKEN" for the Sci-Fi network for which he won an Emmy.
Heus moved on to series television in the late nineties with CBS's "Early Edition," starring Kyle Chandler. He has continued producing series with such shows as "Life As We Know It," "Daybreak," "Peacemakers," and "In Justice" for all the major networks. In the past two years, Heus also produced and directed a series of twelve webisodes for ABC.com entitled "Mode After Dark" based on two characters from "Ugly Betty." He has also directed multiple episodes of network comedy and drama series.
