TWC'S "LAWLESS" CARRIES THE PRODUCERS MARK
Thursday, May 31, 2012
Doug Wick and Lucy Fisher are two of the first producers to have "Produced by” credits certified.
Ladies and gentlemen, the Producers Mark is real.
As reported this morning on the front page of Daily Variety, the upcoming feature from The Weinstein Company, Lawless, produced by Douglas Wick, Lucy Fisher, Michael Benaroya and Megan Ellison, carries the PGA’s Producers Mark on its credits. Within the film’s end titles, Wick’s and Fisher’s names are designated with the Mark, a lowercase "p.g.a.” following their "Produced by” credits.
While the article linked below suggests that this moment caps a two-year effort by the Guild, many of our members know that it has taken far longer than that to reach this moment. For over a decade, the PGA has sought a remedy for the proliferation of unearned producing credits. This implementation of the Producers Mark represents a tremendous step forward for our initiative. We offer our congratulations to Doug and Lucy, and toPGA Presidents Hawk Koch and Mark Gordon, as well as their fellow members on the National Board of Directors (and their predecessors as PGA Presidents), all of whom worked very hard to make the Producers Mark a reality.
