The Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) is a trade association based in Sherman Oaks, California that represents over 350 American television and film production companies in collective bargaining negotiations with entertainment industry trade unions that include, among others, SAG-AFTRA, the Directors Guild of America, the Writers Guild of America, West, the Writers Guild of America, East, the American Federation of Musicians and the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees.

The AMPTP was founded in 1924 as the Association of Motion Picture Producers, or AMPP.[1] As the entertainment industry's official collective bargaining representative,[2] the AMPTP, like the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), is a key trade association for major film and television producers in the United States. The AMPTP currently negotiates 80 industry-wide collective bargaining agreements on behalf of over 350 motion picture and television producers. Member companies include the major motion picture studios, broadcast television networks, certain cable television networks and independent film and television producers.

Nick Counter (March 21, 1940 - November 6, 2009)[3] was President of the AMPTP from 1982 until March 2009.

Other former presidents and chairmen have included Lew Wasserman,[4] Jack Valenti[5] and the late Richard Jencks.[6]

The current President is Carol Lombardini.
