TV Academy Honors sets 5th annual kudos

'Harry's Law,' 'Rescue Me,' 'Men of a Certain Age' among selections

NBC’s “Harry’s Law,” FX’s “Rescue Me,” TNT’s “Men of a Certain Age” and syndie yakker “Dr. Oz” are among the recipients of the fifth annual Television Academy Honors recognizing programs that tackle social issues.

Longform projects selected are HBO docu “Hot Coffee,” which examined the myths of frivolous lawsuits; Lifetime’s breast-cancer anthology “Five,” with segments helmed by Jennifer Aniston, Alicia Keys, Demi Moore, Patty Jenkins and Penelope Spheeris; and PBS’ “Women, War and Peace,” which focused on gender roles in socio-political conflicts.

“Harry’s Law” was chosen for the seg “Head Games,” about the death of a high school football player after a concussion. “Rescue Me” seg “344” dealt with Denis Leary’s firefighter character returning to Ground Zero. “Men of a Certain Age” episode “Let the Sunshine In” wove together storylines involving the importance of colonoscopy exams and addressing a key character’s gambling addiction.

Toplined by cardiologist Mehmet Oz, “Dr. Oz” is hailed for promoting health and wellness topics to daytime viewers.

Television Academy Honors was started to celebrate excellent programming that not only entertains but also presents a unique or significant look at the human condition and important social issues,” said John Shaffner, co-chair of the Television Cares Committee. “It is so exciting to recognize a continued, diverse lineup of honorees that are using the medium of television for good.”

Dana Delany will return for a fourth turn as host of the TV Academy Honors ceremony, set for May 2 at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
