SHINE takes a shine to the WB

Frog net, ABC tie with four noms each

It’s not the Emmys, but it’s a start.

Netlet WB is tops in the list of finalists for the 15th annual Sexual Health In Entertainment (SHINE) awards, which recognizes portrayals of family planning and reproductive health on TV.

The Frog net received four nominations, tying it with ABC, while also earning a nod for its “Zoe, Duncan, Jack and Jane,” in the category of scene stealer. In addition, WB entertainment prexy Susanne Daniels is the recipient of SHINE’s special achievement award.

Awards will be given in eight categories for episodes or storylines dealing with sexuality and birth control. “Ally McBeal,” “Jesse,” “Providence,” “Veronica’s Closet,” and “Zoe Duncan, Jack and Jane” will also receive separate recognition as “scene stealers,” for important sexual health-related scenes.

Reason for awards

“Teens cite television as a primary resource for information about sex,” said Kate Langrall Folb, president of the Media Project, a partnership of Advocates for Youth and the Kaiser Family Foundation, sponsors of the SHINE awards. “Therefore, we feel it is more important than ever to acknowledge positive information about healthy sexual behavior and attitudes.”

Winners will be announced at a ceremony Oct. 26 at L.A.’s Skirball Cultural Center.
