The debut episode of Best Places to Live, a new television series presented by New Jersey Monthly, has been nominated for a New York Emmy.
The half-hour pilot premiered last July 11 on NJTV, the state’s public-broadcasting network. The episode, which was nominated in the “Magazine Programs” category, explores the top attractions and popular neighborhoods of Hudson County’s Gold Coast communities of Hoboken and Jersey City. The Gold Coast episode is underwritten by Coldwell Banker and K. Hovnanian Homes.
The rest of the six-episode season will roll out this spring on NJTV.
“This is believed to be the first Emmy nomination in the 36-year history of New Jersey Monthly,” says Ken Schlager, editorial consultant for the show and editor of New Jersey Monthly. “Naturally, we’re all thrilled.”
The New York Emmy Awards recognize outstanding achievement in New York-area television. The winners will be announced at the 56th awards ceremony, April 14 at the Marriott Marquis in Manhattan.
The other nominees in the “Magazine Programs” category are Best of Food, Destination Miami, Late Night Bites (all WNBC-TV), and Nueva York: Best of Season 7 on CUNY-TV.
Best Places to Live is produced by New York-based Re-Invention TV. The nomination recognizes writer/executive producer Angelina Vivolo Cicala and director Jarett Bellucci for their work on the Gold Coast episode. The nomination was one of four for programs aired on NJTV.
