Doylestown native Olivia Forker has been nominated for the Television Academy Foundation’s 40th College Television Awards.
Forker, currently a student at Ithaca College, has been nominated (along with five of her classmates) in the nonfiction/reality category for a project she wrote and co-produced titled “One Nation Under Guns.”
The documentary focuses on the scourge of mass shootings across the United States and is told through the lens of three communities and how they are dealing with the epidemic.
The College Television Awards honors achievement in student-produced programs and will feature stars from today’s top television shows presenting awards to winners in eight categories. The Television Academy Foundation’s 40th College Television Awards are scheduled for March 21 in Los Angeles.
For 40 years the College Television Awards has been instrumental in launching careers. Past nominees and winners are now working on programs such as “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan,” “The Simpsons,” “America’s Got Talent,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “60 Minutes” and “Empire,” among others.
