Three Emmy Nominations For Telegael
13 Feb 2007 :
  Tutenstein
An Spideál based Telegael Media Group has received three Emmy award nominations from the American Academy of Television Arts & Sciences for three different animation series which the company has co-produced.

Among the nominations, which were announced in New York City on February 7th, Telegael productions ‘Tutenstein’ and ‘Growing Up Creepie’ have been nominated in the ‘Outstanding Special Class Animated Programme’ category while Toddworld was nominated for the ‘Outstanding Childrens Animation Animation Programme’ award.

The Emmy Awards are the Oscars of Television in the United States, and the 2007 Awards Ceremony will take place in the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles in June.

‘Tutenstein’ tells the story of a ten-year-old boy mummy who is struck by lightning and brought back to life in a modern-day museum in a large metropolitan city. In 2004, Telegael has previously won an Emmy award for the series, in the category of ‘Outstanding Special Class Animated Programme’. The series was broadcast in the USA as part of the Discovery Kids block on the NBC channel and has been shown in over forty countries around the world. This nomination is for series two, which was completed in Telegael last year. Discussions are currently taking place in relation to the production of a third television series and also the production of ‘Tutenstein’ the movie.

‘Toddworld’ is currently being broadcast on the Learning Channel in America and on the Canadian Channel TVO. The series has also been acquired by the BBC. Series two is currently in production at Telegael. ‘ToddWorld’ follows the adventures of artistic, offbeat six-year-old, Todd, and his friends amongst a varied assortment of vibrantly-colored animals plus an alien visitor or two. In 2005 and 2006, Telegael also received an Emmy nomination for the series in the category of ‘Outstanding Children’s Animated Programme’.

‘Growing Up Creepie’ is in its first season and is currently being broadcast on Discovery Kids channel in the USA. The series follows the adventures of Creepie, a girl who was found abandoned on a doorstep and raised by a family of bugs and insects. Creepie’s parents have decided it is time to send her to school and see what the real world is like!

Speaking in New York following the announcement of the nominations, Telegael CEO Paul Cummins, expressed delight at the company's multiple nominations: “The fact Telegael has been nominated for Emmys for four consecutive years highlights the strength and the consistency of the company’s production slate and underlines the level of skill and talent amongst the team at our studios in An Spidéal.”
