Awards

Telly Award

Emmy Award
Jeffrey Lehmann was awarded an Emmy for his "outstanding achievement" in "Performance" as host of the "Weekend Explorer" series by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, Pacific Southwest Chapter.

"I'm in shock," says the producer and host of the series Jeffrey
Lehmann. "I started my career behind the camera, so I've had lingering doubts about my on-camera abilities. Maybe it's just artist's
insecurity. At first, I couldn't believe I was even nominated for an
Emmy. Then, to receive an Emmy in "Performance" in a field with so many talented on-camera personalities is just amazing to me."
