Executive Producer David Gelber accepts the Emmy.
The "Years of Living Dangerously" documentary series on climate change won Outstanding Documentary Or Nonfiction Series at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards, traditionally held the weekend before the Primetime Emmys telecast, which will air Aug. 25 on NBC. The Creative Arts Emmys will air on Aug. 24 on FXM.
Margaret Ebrahim, senior producer at the Workshop, was a producer on the series, which aired on Showtime earlier this year. She spent 15 months traveling the country to report stories on the impact of climate change.
The series was also awarded "The EMA Outstanding Achievement for Environmental Content Award" for 2014. The Environmental Media Association's awards ceremony will take place Oct. 18 at Warner Bros. Studios.
You can watch Episode 1 online on the "Years" site and read more about climate change on the Workshop's site, where we have additional stories on drought and its impact; on wind energy; and on legislative efforts on renewable energy. Ebrahim and associate producer Jolie Lee also talk about the project in a series of videos developed for the Workshop.
