Who are we?
We are a peer-to-peer community of over 1250 Television Producers and Directors, united by a drive to improve TV industry conditions. Our group offers a safe place for individuals to share their experiences, find support and obtain independent advice.
VLPD was created in 2017 by Greg Northfield; dismayed at the mounting pressure and unrealistic expectations on Producers and Directors across the industry, he reached out to fifty friends and colleagues to find out if anyone else felt the same. The response was overwhelming and within a week Viva La PD was born.
Over the past four years, Viva La PD has had significant success tackling issues such as wage disparity and most notably ‘buy out’ contracts with our campaign #6for6 - 6 days pay for 6 days work. The group continues to campaign for better health and safety regulations and to encourage open conversation regarding both good and bad experiences with the goal of improving the industry for all.
