Television Academy to honour 13 Reasons Why

Published: 05th May 2018

13 Reasons Why, One Day at a Time and Andi Mack are among the recipients of the 11th Annual Television Academy Honors.

Selected from a "record number" of submissions, the 2018 honorees represent "some of the most meaningful and relevant series, programmes and documentaries of the past year", the organisation said on Friday. 

The other honorees are Daughters of a Destiny, Forbidden: Undocumented & Queer in Rural America, and LA 92.

"Our dynamic television landscape is a catalyst for raising awareness of relevant issues around the globe," says Television Academy Chairman and CEO, Hayma Washington. "We are proud to be part of an industry that spreads understanding, uncovers the truth, encourages compassion and shines a light on darkness."

These honorees will be celebrated at a special presentation and reception on May 31 in Hollywood, California, hosted for the 10th consecutive year by actor-producer-activist Dana Delany.

"Every year I learn something new and am inspired by the works that are recognized," says Delany. 

This year's honorees specifically represent TV series that depicts a spectrum of issues ranging from sexual harassment to LGBTQ prejudice and acceptance to veterans' healthcare, teen mental health and suicide, racial discrimination, immigrant rights and social justice.
