When my colleagues asked me to write about my favorite AMERICAN EXPERIENCE, I was kind of shocked. I mean, I'm sort of the new kid on the team, having joined the production in March as the marketing account manager. Before March, I was more like most of you — longtime viewer and living room commenter. Over the years, this series has blown my mind and tugged at my heart strings, raised my blood pressure and caused me to sob uncontrollably with stories that I never knew, or knew enough of. None had moved me more than the 2010 film Freedom Riders.
AMERICAN EXPERIENCE has been honored with two nominations for the 65th annual Primetime Emmy Awards. Announced this morning, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences nominated the series' films Death and the Civil War for "Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Special," and The Abolitionists for "Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Series."
