Frontline received seven of PBS’s nine News & Documentary Emmy Awards, at ceremonies Oct. 1 in New York City. Nature and American Experience rounded out the honors.
PBS was second to CBS, which won 12.
Frontline creator and Executive Producer David Fanning also received the Lifetime Achievement Award. “David has combined his unmatched reportorial instincts with a fine filmmaker’s sensibilities, and the result is a series that is unlike any other on television,” said PBS President Paula Kerger.
