Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group, announced that the limited series adaptation from Michael Schur, “Field of Dreams,” is establishing production offices and shooting locations in Iowa. Production is slated to begin this summer for the series, which will stream on Peacock. Produce Iowa and NBCUniversal will be hosting a professional “boot camp” style training as part of Produce Iowa’s MediaMasters Series that will prepare Iowans to work on a large-scale production in our state.
The Production Assistant (P.A.) Bootcamp training program in Iowa will offer an intensive workshop for the job of P.A., which is the entry-level gateway into the entertainment industry as it has been for many highly successful producers, directors and crew currently working in the industry. This two-day work-based job training program, taking place on June 4 and June 5, will provide selected Iowa residents with an opportunity to gain skills, knowledge and a foundational understanding of a television production.
Are you interested in learning everything necessary to work as a P.A. on any film or television set and do the job from day one? Check out pabootcamp.com and our MediaMasters webpage for program details and to watch an informational video before signing-up.
Registration closes Sunday, May 15 at 11:59 PM.
