About Produced By: New York

The Producers Guild of America is joined by Presenting Sponsor Discovery Communications to present the second Produced By: New York. This one-day event will showcase the best of the vibrant and diverse New York creative community working in film, television, and new media.

Produced By is the signature event where the most influential decision-makers in the entertainment industry gather as peers to educate, illuminate, and share new technological and economic innovations. This event is truly for producers, by producers.  This year, PBNY has already confirmed a conversation with comedy icon Tina Fey.

Attendees have the opportunity to network with Oscar-winning filmmakers, Emmy-winning showrunners, and the next generation of creative entrepreneurs during a full day of panel discussions, group mentoring sessions, and an evening cocktail reception.

Produced By is held through the Producers Guild of America’s charitable entity, the PGA Foundation, as it epitomizes the Foundation’s core mission to educate those who work in the producing profession.
