DALLAS – Identity Media Services, LLC, announced today that the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences has nominated the company’s “Best Docs Network” program, and its “Tailgate Rivals” program for Emmy Awards.

“We are very excited in all areas nominated for both of our current weekly programs. Our staff has worked tirelessly in all areas but especially in the overall content and production quality of our programs. It would be a huge accomplishment to win in our categories, but for now, the fact of being nominated with all of the thousands and thousands of hours of Texas programming, in itself is incredibly rewarding,” said the company’s CEO, Bill Lee.

This is not the first nominated for one of the company’s programs. In 2010, “GameDay Rivals” was nominated and won the prestigious Lone Star Emmy Award. “This is actually our fifth season for our “Tailgate Rivals” show –formally GameDay Rivals. Each year the show kept growing and growing in popularity with the help of Fox Sports Southwest who airs our show in their fourteen Southwestern markets. This years show is even bigger and better as we have launched our new website, created some great competitions with cool prizes, and simplified the voting process to search out for the Bud Light Ultimate Tailgater,” says Executive Producer, Jim Knox.
