It looks like the Producers Guild's second annual fund-raising Produced By Conference, to be held June 4 to 6 on the Fox lot, is likely to be sold out again. (If they don't have to sell discounted tickets, they might make money this year.)

The PBC expects more than 1200 TV, film and new media producers to register for panels, mentoring roundtables, workshops, exhibits and demos. Mostly they'll be lured by panels and conversations featuring Alice in Wonderland producer Richard Zanuck, Chronicles of Narnia producer Mark Johnson, Madmen creator Matthew Weiner, Mission Impossible producer Paula Wagner, Robin Hood producer Brian Grazer and director Ridley Scott, 2929's Mark Cuban, 2012 producer Mark Gordon, TV and film producer Marshall Herskovitz, and the producing teams from Pixar and The Simpsons, including James L. Brooks. Panel sessions include "Producing Blockbusters," "Independent Financing," "Storytelling in Stereoscopic 3D," "Better, Faster, Cheaper: The Secrets of Producing Television in 2010" and "New Voices, New Stories, New Audiences."
