Producers Guild of America to honor J.J. Abrams

UPI News Service, 11/05/2012 

The Producers Guild of America said Monday it plans to honor J.J. Abrams with its 2013 Norman Lear Award for Television.

The distinction will be bestowed on the 46-year-old writer-producer-director at the 24th annual PGA Awards Jan. 26.

Best known for his work on the TV shows "Felicity," "Alias" and "Lost," Abrams is the founder and president of the Bad Robot production company, which he runs with his producing partner Bryan Burk. The company's current series are "Fringe," "Person of Interest" and "Revolution." Abrams' film credits include "Mission: Impossible 3," "Star Trek" and "Super 8."

"J.J. Abrams has produced some of the most iconic and highest-rated television shows of the past decade and longer, series that have changed the landscape of television," Producers Guild Awards chair Michael DeLuca said in a statement. "His talent is astonishing, and through his commitment to ingenious storytelling, compelling characters and television programming of the highest quality, he truly lives up to this award's namesake."

"It is an incredible honor to be asked to accept the Producers Guild Norman Lear Award, especially since Mr. Lear is one of my true heroes," said Abrams. "I feel privileged to be included among the prestigious list of past recipients, and look forward to celebrating the work of my fellow producers in January."
