The nominated episode was directed by Everett Reiff (14C). Other series contributors included Josy Roman (14C) and John Jones (14C).

Curt HerseyAssistant Professor of Communication Curt Hersey (93C) was one of 20 television and media instructors nationwide chosen for a November seminar hosted by the Television Academy Foundation. While in Hollywood, he had the opportunity to meet with high-level industry professionals, tour major on-site facilities, and get up close and personal with a coveted Emmy Award. Though he didn’t get to keep the trophy, Hersey is already putting the knowledge he gained and connections he made to work for his students.

“I’m working with the foundation to set up video conferences with industry professionals for classes,” he explained. “And they are also helping me make contacts for a research project I’m working on. Long term, I hope to eventually take a group of students for a Maymester experience in L.A. using the contacts I’ve made.” More.
