I've been looking at the credits for Rick and Morty and I'm unsure whether Ollie Greene, Keith Crofford, and Mike Lazzo are valid producer and executive producer roles.

There are plenty of other producers and executive producers who aren't linked to one of the production studios, but I've never noticed this sort of credit before. As they are producing on behalf of one of the studios, should they be included with the crew?

I suppose they should. That's how I handle it anyway.
Most producers are linked to a studio, I'd imagine, they're just not credited that way.
I have plenty discs in my collection that have similar credits, funnily enough they are almost exclusively british TV productions.

Both valid as far as I am concerned. I have found they are particularly common on TV shows.

I suspected they would be, but wanted to check here before contributing a profile update with them.

Crofford and Lazzo are credited this way for Squidbillies as well, and I included them.
My one wish for the DVD Profiler online database: Ban or remove the disc-level profiles of TV season sets. It completely screws up/inflates the CLT.
FACT: Imdb is WRONG 70% of the time! Misspelled cast, incomplete cast, wrong cast/crew roles. So for those who want DVD Profiler to be "as perfect as Imdb", good luck with that.
Stop adding UNIT crew! They're invalid credits. Stop it!

I see that a lot on National Geographic specials.  I always enter the studio as a group header, and then the producer under it.

I'll see what happens with my contribution and then see if anything – like a divider – needs adding to make the distinction between 'regular 'producers and those specifically working for a production studio

I've seen some people put the Company divider in, others do not. It's not covered in the Rules.

Yeah I think this is somewhat common in documentaries especially.  I have seen a lot of sports documentaries that have something similar.
