The Non-Fiction Producers Association, a trade group for documentary and nonfiction TV production, announced Wednesday that 14 production companies from New York and Los Angeles have joined its membership. The non-profit now has 22 production companies among its members.
“We are gratified by the continuing and growing positive response to the formation of the NPA, and are delighted to welcome these new companies – from the East and West Coasts – to our ranks,” said NPA executive director Rick Feldman. “The NPA now includes 22 of the industry’s top television producers, and we are currently in talks with more production companies that have expressed serious interest.”
In addition to the eight NPA member companies announced last month — including Atlas Media Corp., Big Fish Entertainment, Jane Street Entertainment, Leftfield Pictures, Loud TV, Magilla Entertainment, Original Media, and True Entertainment — the new members include Bunim/Murray Productions, Evolution Media, Eyeworks USA, Go Go Luckey Entertainment, GRB Entertainment, High Noon Entertainment, Lighthearted Entertainment, LMNO Productions, MY Entertainment, Optomen, Renegade 83, Sharp Entertainment, The Ebersol Lanigan Company, and Zodiak New York.
The NPA also announced it has formed a six-member Executive Committee and a 15-member Board of Directors. The board’s first meeting will be held Sept. 10 in New York, where the group will establish its first set of initiatives.
