This is probably really a dumb question. But I always thought a production company came up with ideas for shows and movies.. but it doesn't sound right after reading some posts.. So... what exactly does a production company do?

As Otis said - they PRODUCE the movie.

They buy the script from someone like me, they fire my *ss and hire someone to rewrite the script, they hire director, stars, crew... and make the movie. They are a company that produces movies.

I've never known a *company* to have an idea.

Executives and/or producers at companies do come up with their own ideas. It is possible. Not usually the case, but it has happened. They will then hire a writer(s) to develop the project for them.

We've listed deals like that.
