A comedy series airing on one of the major broadcast networks has won a Peabody Award, along with productions from Netflix, Amazon and a number of cable shows.
ABC’s “black-ish” is among the winners just announced for the 75th annual Entertainment & Children’s Programming Peabodys.
Commenting on the selection of “black-ish,” the Peabody Awards said of the show, “A bright, boisterous, big-hearted comedy about an affluent African American family working overtime to keep it real, ‘black-ish’ doesn’t let jokes get in the way of insights about race, class, guns, and other hot-button topics that most popular entertainment shows scarcely mention.”
The awards also singled out the Netflix productions “Beasts of No Nation,” “Marvel’s Jessica Jones” and “Master of None,” Amazon Video’s “Transparent,” “HBO’s “The Leftovers,” Sundance TV’s “Deutschland 83” and USA Network’s “Mr. Robot,” among others.
