Star Trek‘s J.J. Abrams will be receiving an award from the Producers Guild of America (PGA).
The award is the Norman Lear Achievement Award.
“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,” said Producers Guild Awards chair Michael DeLuca. “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.”
The 24th Annual Producers Guild Awards will take place in Los Angeles on January 26.
