Brand, Falsey earn WGA Chayefsky honor

'St. Elsewhere' team to be celebrated at guild awards

Joshua Brand and John Falsey will receive the Paddy Chayefsky Laurel Award for Television at the Writers Guild of America Awards on Feb. 17.

Brand and Falsey co-created series including “Northern Exposure,” “St. Elsewhere” and “I’ll Fly Away.”

“Defined by an expert blend of sharp observation, dry wit, and honest emotion, their work is, like a singer with a five-octave range, breathtaking in its scope and its power,” said WGAW prexy Christopher Keyser.

The pair began as story editors for “The White Shadow,” writing more than a dozen episodes. Currently, Brand is serving as a consultant on upcoming FX series “The Americans,” and writing a one-hour FX pilot, “Lords of the Sunset Strip.”
