"These exceptional programs and producers have used television to adeptly address some of the most significant and challenging issues facing communities across the globe," said Television Academy Chairman and CEO Frank Scherma. "Our medium is incredibly powerful, and these six programs have leveraged it to inspire transformational change."

Bryan Leder, Governor for the Professional Representatives Peer Group, chaired this year's Television Academy Honors selection committee with Kim Taylor-Coleman, C.S.A., Governor for the Casting Directors Peer Group, serving as vice chair.

"It was a robust year of outstanding and thought-provoking submissions that represent the histories and voices of storytellers. This year's Honors recipients reflect an intersectionality of topics with unique perspectives that are accessible to all," said Leder. "The committee applauds all the hard work that writers, actors, directors, producers and their teams expended in pursuit of creating meaningful and impactful content," added Taylor-Coleman. "While narrowing down the field was difficult, this year's winners were especially distinguished and deserved to be singled out."
