"During one of the most challenging years in television history, these seven extraordinary programs illuminated and championed some of the most critical issues facing our communities," said Television Academy Chairman and CEO Frank Scherma.

Howard Meltzer, CSA, Governor for the Academy's Casting Directors Peer Group, chaired this year's Television Academy Honors selection committee, with Jill Sanford, Governor for the Children's Programming Peer Group, serving as vice chair.
"The Academy Honors Committee was pleased to receive many worthy submissions for this award.
