Winner 2006


Showtime, Mandalay Television

Brothers Tommy and Michael Chafeestand at the center of Brotherhood, yet their conflicted bond is but one kind of tie is this rich drama. Layers of connection, tangles of commitment, thick knots of dark obligation run through the communities and clusters of politics, crime, romance and most significantly, of family. Tommy, who longs to provide for his family and his community in a time of change, has successfully threaded his way into political power. Michael, criminal to the core, has returned to claim a place with a different power of his own. But it is Tommy who so often seems morally compromised, while Michael protects and instructs those around him. Shot entirely on location in Providence, Rhode Island, Brotherhood captures the weariness of old cities and tells its stories within a remarkable sense of place. Brotherhood, a story that drives viewers to consider their own choices in an imperfect world, receives a Peabody Award.
