Started in August 2014 by eight companies...

...the Nonfiction Producers Association (NPA) has grown to fifty-seven members in the United States and Canada. Among them are some of non-fiction’s most prominent, award-winning, audience-pleasing producers, responsible for many of its longest-running series.

Their association works for them and an industry that produces $3.9 billion annually and provides tens of thousands of high-paying jobs.

Most of their clients are America’s cable and broadcast TV networks, although NPA producers also make programming for Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, YouTube and a host of emerging digital outlets.


The NPA promotes the growth and profitability of the nonfiction production community through:

Cost savings: We achieve savings for producers through joint buying of equipment, software, services, insurance and conference registration and travel discounts.

Industry Solutions: From tax incentives to deal terms we resolve issues facing nonfiction production companies and their network clients through consistent, open communication, leveraging resources and sharing information.

Networking: We connect, educate and strengthen our members and promote best practices across the board.

Research: We collect and report data and insights within the industry and for release to the press and public.

Public affairs: We represent nonfiction producers across America before government officials at every level.
