Print More

PBS has 15 Writers Guild of America nods — more than any other broadcast or cable TV channel — for outstanding achievement during the 2009 season. Frontline took all six nominations in the documentary and current events category. In the documentary other than current events category, all six slots also went to pubcasting, five for American Experience and one for National Parks: America’s Best Idea. Bill Moyers Journal scored two nominations in news analysis feature or commentary, and Sesame Street also took two spots in children’s episodic and specials. The nominations are from both the Writers Guild of America, West, and Writers Guild of America, East. The awards will be presented Feb. 20, 2010, in New York and Los Angeles.
