Word Origin & History

production
c.1430, "that which is produced," from O.Fr. production (13c.), from M.L. productionem (nom. productio), from L. productus, pp. of producere "bring forth" (see produce). Colloquial sense of "fuss, commotion" is from 1941, on notion of "theatrical performance" (1894).
