PGA Issues Statement On Pivotal FCC Net Neutrality Vote

Posted By Administration, Thursday, February 26, 2015

Today the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted in favor of tougher net neutrality rules that would reclassify the Internet as a Title II telecommunications service, thus preventing Internet Service Providers (ISPs) from either discriminating or facilitating certain data flow from certain locations and services.  The net neutrality rules passed by a vote of 3-2. The Producers Guild of America releases the following statement regarding this pivotal decision:

The Producers Guild of America applauds the FCC's recently announced regulations supporting net neutrality. We believe that the FCC's approach is realistic and provides producers of creative content with a powerful affirmation that internet distribution channels will remain equally and fairly accessible to all services, voices, and perspectives.

While many share the PGA's support for the FCC's vote today and for Net Neutrality principles, most agree that the issue will continue to be contended in courts at later dates.

Leading Producers: On the Record...

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, February 4, 2015
What does "tenacity" mean to a producer? The Producers Guild of America is proud to showcase these exclusive video interviews of the industry's most serious and accomplished producers. We pick their brains on things from "Focus Groups" and "What Makes a Star", to the frustrations associated with talents' hair & wigs.

Originally featured at the 2015 Producers Guild Awards, the theme of which was "tenacity".

What is Tenacity?:

Jenni Konner
: You just go forward until they're like, 'Oh, I guess we're making this...'

Andrew Lazar: I'm still working on projects that are 20-years old. 

Howard Gordon: [like] trying to steer a race car with someone in the back seat throwing rocks at your head.

Plus hear from Norman Lear, Brian Grazer, Richard Linklater, Nina Jacobson, and more...
