Blue Mountain Television Earns Telly Award

August 01, 2002 | Lynelle Ellis

Blue Mountain Television’s new show, “Escape,” has been honored as a finalist in the 2002 Telly Awards competition.

“Jerry,” the pilot episode of “Escape,” received a bronze finalist Telly in recognition of outstanding non-network TV programming. Telly Awards are some of the most sought-after in the TV, commercial, and video industry.

More than 11,000 entries were submitted to the 23rd Annual Telly Awards and judged by a group of 20 highly qualified production professionals, themselves all former Telly winners.

“Receiving a Telly Award is like getting a report card on your work from your professional peers,” said Nikia Furman, “Escape” producer. Blue Mountain Television continues production on the new show, with plans to have 13 episodes ready to air by February. •
