Series Writing Fenced Out

August 07, 1994

From the Emmy nominations announced last week, the television academy sent out a message that there was not one other quality drama series in a whole season that deserved recognition for writing other than "NYPD Blue" (ABC). If such is the case, that does not bode well for the future of commercial television.

Congratulations to the producers, writers, cast and crew of "NYPD Blue" on their record 26 Emmy nominations. I watched every week and I applaud their efforts. However, in terms of writing, there is a far more deserving drama series that was sorely overlooked by the academy--"Picket Fences" (CBS).

Why isn't anyone (the media) crying foul? Where is the Writers Guild of America and the representatives of the talented scripters who crafted the fine dramas this season such as "Northern Exposure," "Homicide" and "Picket Fences"?

If I were them, I'd picket the Emmys.
