Homicide: Life on the Street
NBC, Baltimore Pictures, Reeves Entertainment, SL/TMF Productions, in assocation with NBC Productions
Two years ago the Peabody Board cited Homicide: Life on the Street for its “innovative, quirky, and frequently brilliant combination of style and substance.” This year, the Board again recognizes this program’s continuing excellence with a second Peabody Award. The drama’s peerless storylines continue to make connections between the worlds of the homicide detectives and the criminals and victims they confront. The characters, created by Paul Attanasio, executive producers Barry Levinson and Tom Fontana, co-executive producer Henry Bromell and a talented team of writers, illustrate good, evil, and the gray area between those extremes. The accomplished ensemble of actors includes Ned Beatty, Daniel Baldwin, Richard Belzer, Andre Braugher, Isabella Hofmann, Clark Johnson, Yaphet Kotto, Melissa Leo and Kyle Secor. For providing a socially-relevant dramatic series that continues to improve its impressive record of achievement, a Peabody to NBC, Baltimore Pictures, Reeves Entertainment, SL/TMF Productions, in association with NBC Productions, for Homicide: Life on the Street.
