Producers Guild of America

Producers Guild of America is a trade organization representing around 4,000 television producers, film producers and New Media producers. The guild provides seminars, programs and special screenings, and offers some benefits to its members.

The PGA started as two separate organizations, with the Screen Producers Guild being formed in 1950. Its first president was William Perlberg.

In 1957, some of television producers formed the Television Producers Guild with Ben Brady as its first president.

In 1962, the Screen Producers Guild and the Television Producers Guild merged to create the Producers Guild of America.

In 1983, a group of associate producers of videotape television formed the American Association of Producers (AAP). Gayle Maffeo was the first president.

In 2001, the PGA merged with the American Association of Producers (AAP) enabling the guild to represent all members of the producing team; and PGA East office was established in New York.

In 2002, the guild formed its New Media Council in order to better represent producers working in emerging media such as Internet entertainment, interactive television, DVDs and console games.
