I lose my voice...because of that terrible man.
~ Miku Izayoi about the Producer

The Hotshot TV Producer is a minor character in the Date A Live franchise. He is only mentioned in the light novel and  in the anime adaptation by Miku Izayoi. His name is unknown, but he is presented as a Producer of a TV Channel. At first he seems like a simple TV Producer who would know Miku because he interested in her, he soon reveals his true colors.

He was only mentioned by Miku in the anime when Shido and Miku were going to save Tohka in the case of Miku. Miku just joined with to save Tohka from Deus.Ex.Machina Industries because she wanted to add Tohka to her "collection" of Spirits.

When Shido asked to Miku why she hates men so much, she said it was because of a "TV Producer." Miu said that the producer was interested in her and her manager told to her to be gentle with him. The producter tried to sexually entice Miku, however, Miku refused to accept his advances and left the place and never spoke to the Producer again. After that, the Producer spread degrading rumors about Miku; the news was so outrageous that all fans of Miku left her one by one, the attack leaving Miku mentally shaken. In a final attack, he made Miku contract a disease that made her lose her voice, as well as her singing career. The attack was enough to nearly drive Miku to suicide and made her lose everything. The Producer is also responsible for making her become a misandrist, and despite his limited resources, he is often regarded as one of the more vile villains of Date a Live.
