FRONTLINE Wins Four Emmy Awards
Three FRONTLINE documentaries and a promotional trailer won last night at the 35th Annual News & Documentary Emmy Awards.
The winning FRONTLINE projects included two documentaries on foreign affairs (Syria Behind the Lines, Outlawed in Pakistan), one documentary on the U.S. economy (The Retirement Gamble), and the trailer for League of Denial: The NFL’s Concussion Crisis.
“We couldn’t be prouder of all of our winners and nominees, who have worked incredibly hard to do the tough, tenacious work of investigative reporting,” said Raney Aronson-Rath, FRONTLINE deputy executive producer.
“We’re grateful to all of our funders, especially PBS and CPB,” said David Fanning, FRONTLINE executive producer. “We are privileged to be entrusted to do this work, and proud of FRONTLINE’s long record of broadcast journalism.”
FRONTLINE has now won 69 total Emmy Awards since 1983, in addition to last year’s Lifetime Achievement honor for series founder David Fanning.
PBS was the most-decorated network of the night, with 11 wins. You can read the full list of all winners from The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) here — and you can watch the winning FRONTLINE projects below.
