When it rains, it pours! On the heels of six Daytime Emmy Award nominations, Netflix’s Ask the StoryBots has today been named a finalist at the 76th Annual Peabody Awards.
One of media’s most prestigious honors, the Peabody Awards recognize “the most compelling and empowering stories released in electronic media” in the past year. Most impressively, from more than 1,200 total entries, Ask the StoryBots is one of only two finalists in the children’s programming category.
The 60 Peabody finalists – which include groundbreaking programming like OJ: Made in America, Atlanta, Stranger Things, Veep and Beyonce’s Lemonade film – will be narrowed down to 30 winners, and all will be celebrated at a gala event in New York on May 20 (airing on PBS and Fusion on June 2).
The StoryBots team is beyond honored to be recognized alongside such innovative, brilliant and creative work! A full list of finalists is available here.
