From Webbies to Emmys

NewTeeVee is reporting that web series will be eligible for the Emmys.

“Now, broadband shows will be considered the same as network and cable contenders in categories for drama, comedy, variety/musical shows, “long form” including mini-series, made-for-television movies, reality shows, non-fiction filmmaking and prime-time animation.”

This is a big step that means the truly independent producers will be competing directly with the establishment.  True, resources will be vastly uneven, but it will be a huge moment if a web show beats out a tradition TV program for an Emmy.
