The Production Guild of Great Britain (PGGB) has announced the members of its new Yorkshire Committee, the sixth and final National and Regional Committee to be established by the leading UK membership body for production professionals, as part of its drive to increase representation for the British film and High-end TV production workforce. 

The PGGB Yorkshire Committee is sponsored by Location One and Sunbelt Rentals UK and supported by VERSA Studios. It is chaired by York-based line producer and writer/director Liza Bolton. An established line producer for both TV and film for the past decade, Bolton’s recent LP credits include series two of Jamie Johnson FC for Short Form Film & CBBC in Leeds and Father Christmas is Back (Netflix). In the past five years she has also written and directed features including Ocean Deep (Redbox USA), Serena's Game (Apple TV) and York Witches Society (Vertical Entertainment), all of which shot in Yorkshire. Vice Chairs are Ian Pearce (managing director – regions, Supply 2 Locations) and freelance producer Lynn Roberts (Man Like Mobeen, Alma’s Not Normal). Committee members are production accountant Wayne Noir (Blue Lights, Inside Man) and Faizal Harshim (Manchester branch manager, Location One).
