The award-winning television show “Tennessee Uncharted” has been nominated for two Midsouth Regional Emmy® awards by The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS). Producer Taylor Walters and host Erick Baker were nominated in the Writer/Program category, and again in the Informational/Instructional Series category with Executive Producers Bryan Allen, Don King, Joseph Nother and Brandon Rochelle. The Nashville/Midsouth Chapter of NATAS will announce the awards at its annual gala at the Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum on February 27, 2016.
“As is the case with any show in its infancy, we faced certain challenges in our first season,” said Walters. “We were definitely finding our sea legs, which makes being considered for an award that much more of an honor. We feel very fortunate to be in the company of such esteemed colleagues in the industry.”
“Tennessee Uncharted” returned to the airwaves for a second season this fall. The popular outdoor show features some of Tennessee’s most unique locations, interesting folks, outstanding recreational activities and deep-rooted culture. Each weekly show highlights unusual adventures such as kayaking, bird watching, hang gliding, as well as traditional hunting and fishing. Acclaimed for his music, Baker brings a fresh voice to Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency grounded in his childhood experiences in the Tennessee outdoors.
“Since the beginning, we’ve been busy telling the tales of Tennessee,” said Walters. “So we really feel like these nominations are a direct reflection of our great state and all the fascinating people in it.”
“Tennessee Uncharted” can be seen on local public television stations, statewide on The Tennessee Channel and on the newly-launched online streaming service from TWRA, TWRA.tv.
