"Chisolm '72" and "A Room Nearby" to Receive ITVS' Peabody Awards

The Independent Television Service (ITVS), celebrating its 15th anniversary in 2006, announced today that two of its acclaimed films were among the winners of the George Foster Peabody Awards for 2006. “Chisolm ’72: Unbought and Unbossed” by Shola Lynch and Phil Bertelsen, and “A Room Nearby” by Paul and Sandra Ferlinger were chosen to be among the 32 programs honored. The two films being honored for 2006 brings the grand total of ITVS Peabody Awards to nine since opening its doors in 1991. “We could not be more proud of the amazing accomplishments of all our filmmakers,” said Judy Tam, ITVS vice president and CFO in a statement. “It is wonderful to see their hard work, determination and artistic vision recognized by such a prestigious award.” The Peabody Awards are the oldest and one of the most prestigious honors in electronic media.
