The Producers Guild of America is handing out its highest honors this year to TV producer David Picker, awarding him the Charles FitzSimons Award for service to the guild and its members.

Picker receives the award after serving four years as chair of the PGA East region. "I am touched and honored beyond words," he said.

PGA Executive director Vance Van Petten said Picker's commitment to the guild has been an "inspiration" and "tremendous boon" to its members. Picker's honors include life membership in the PGA.
