City TV Nominated For Two Emmy Awards
Make room on the shelf – CityTV, the government access cable channel for the City of Santa Monica, has received two Emmy Award nominations in the Public Service Announcement (PSA) Category. The PSAs were produced for two Santa Monica community organizations, CLARE Foundation and Step Up on Second.
The PSAs were produced in partnership with Women in Film’s PSA Production Program. Volunteer creative teams composed of a producer, director and writer worked with the non-profits to create scripts for the PSAs. The PSAs were shot using volunteer talent, including clients and staff from the non-profit organizations.
“This is our first year for this partnership with Women in Film and we couldn’t be more pleased with the results,” said Darren Doerschel, CityTV’s Acting Station Manager. “Our commitment to the community and to quality programming shines through with this Emmy® nomination.”
CityTV will find out if its nominations turn into statuettes at the 61st Los Angeles Area Emmy Awards presentation on Saturday evening, August 29, 2009 at the Leonard H. Goldenson Theatre in North Hollywood.
