The Variety hed, “Doc org lock noms,” runs atop the piece about the International Documentary Association’s announcement of its 24 finalists in four categories for the 22nd Annual Distinguished Documentary Awards, so you understand why the succinct hed. The big news lies in this paragraph:
Nominees in the limited series category: CBC’s “China Rises,” VH1’s “The Drug Years,” Discovery Times’ “Off to War,” Sundance Channel’s “Transgeneration,” and PBS’ “RX for Survival: a Global Health Challenge.”
Yes, TransGeneration is the fabulous and moving WOW documentary series, so kudos and hat-doffing are in order for director-supervising producer Jeremy Simmons and producer Thairin Smothers. Fingers crossed.
