Tina Rodrick or Mark Allen will call saying that they are a "Lead Producer" for a PBS TV show with a famous host such as Joan Lunden.  Joan Lunden has nothing to do with these people, and PBS has put a warning on their website that this is a scam!  They say you'll get publicity on national TV, that you'll get a DVD to use as marketing.  You'll get neither.  Run away from them!  Here is an e-mail I got from PBS about them:
----
Thank you for contacting PBS.

You are correct- these people are in NO WAY affiliated with PBS.  This is a recurring problem that we have posted a notice about on our website's FAQ's.  They are very careful to mention "public television" or "PBS stations", knowing that most people will assume they are affiliated with PBS.  This is not the case.  We have absolutely no connection to these people.

PBS wishes to clarify that it is not associated with and does not endorse, distribute programming for, review underwriting for or otherwise have any business relationship with the following production companies: American Artists Television, American Review TV, Business Break TV, Business Trends, Eco Planet TV, Event Media TV, Evergreen Entertainment, Family Television Studios, Food For Thought TV, Giving Back, Global Television Studios, Great America (with Hugh Downs), Healthy Path, Heroes of Hope, Infinity Media Group, Insights, The Journal (with Joan Lunden), Paradigm Media Group, Platinum Group, PMG, PMGTV, Roadshow Productions, United Media Communications Group, Vision Media, Vision Media Television, VM Television, VT Media, VT Media Productions, or World Progress Report (with Joan Lunden). PBS does not oversee the production or distribution of any programs associated with any of these companies.

In addition,  PBS is not a production entity; we do not assist in the direct production of programs. We acquire previously completed programming or enter into production agreements with a variety of independent producers, and we only work with experienced production entities.

Thank you for contacting PBS about this issue. Our lawyers are currently aware of the issue.


Sincerely,
Penelope
PBS Audience Services
