    Fall Television Featuring Latinos

    The fall television season is well underway, and NHMC is excited to highlight Latino talent on some of 2016’s most anticipated shows, both new and returning. Some of the fall’s most critically acclaimed shows — such as Jane the Virgin, How To Get Away With Murder, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine — prominently feature Latinos in award-winning lead roles, while many promising shows posed to premiere this fall — including Pitch, The Exorcist, and Westworld — are notably led by a roster of impressive Latino newcomers and veterans alike.

    The Los Angeles Area Emmy nominations were released earlier this month. NHMC is excited and immensely proud of long-time friend and exceptional producer, Alison Sotomayor, who was nominated along with her partner, Lyn Goldfarb, for their documentary film, Bridging the Divide: Tom Bradley and the Politics of Race, which aired nationally on 319 PBS stations in 137 markets during Black History Month this year. The documentary reached 96% of the top 25 markets in the country, which is a significant accomplishment for an independent documentary.
