Please be also advised that Lynchpin Productions is related to another company, Scout Productions, who is also not signed to cover this program.

AFTRA members should always check with their AFTRA office to confirm that an employer is signed to the appropriate AFTRA contract, and Franchised Talent Agents should always check and verify the signatory status of an employer who seeks to engage their AFTRA member clients for services.
