Television Academy, Got Your 6 Partnering to Spotlight Veterans Issues

The Television Academy is partnering with military-focused campaign Got Your 6 to help spotlight veterans issues.

On Nov. 5 and 10, the two will showcase Storytellers, a Veterans Day-timed event that celebrates veterans utilizing their military experience and skill sets to strengthen communities across America. The Got Your 6-produced event will also honor the producers and creators telling those stories.

“The Got Your 6 Storytellers events align with the Television Academy’s mission to foster diverse voices and narratives on television,” said Television Academy President and COO Maury McIntyre. “These events represent a dynamic platform on which to connect veterans with the creative community, with the goal of inspiring television that explores the stories of the men and women of the military in thought-provoking and meaningful ways.”

Rob Gordon, president of Be The Change, the parent organization of Got Your 6, added: ““The mission of Got Your 6 is to bridge the civilian-military divide, and one of the most important ways we do that is by speaking to television and film creators, and giving them the tools to normalize their portrayal of veterans. There is no more respected entity in television than the Television Academy, so we are truly honored and elated to add this esteemed organization to produce Storytellers. This is more than a nonprofit partnership: it’s an incredible opportunity for veterans to speak directly to the writers, producers, studio executives and performers who create popular media.”

The third-annual Got Your 6 Storytellers East event is Nov. 5 at the HBO Theatre in New York. It will feature producer Bruce Cohen, Marine veteran and actor J.W. Cortes and Army veteran Danielle Green.

Storytellers West is on Nov. 10 at Paramount Pictures Studios’ Sherry Lansing Theatre  and will feature Charlie Ebersol, CEO and founder of The Company, and former Seattle Seahawks player Nate Boyer.
