“We are ecstatic that the Academy has nominated ‘Made in Hollywood: Teen Edition’ for a Daytime Emmy Award as Outstanding Children’s Series, validated by our across-the-board renewals from our broadcast station group partners for the ’Made in Hollywood’ franchise,” O’Neal III stated in a news release.

“Made in Hollywood” features interviews with celebrities like Hugh Jackman, Reese Witherspoon, Neil Patrick Harris and more, star profiles, on-set coverage with directors, writers and producers, film previews and other behind-the-scenes entertainment programming that “gives the viewer a look at how special effects and tech wizards pull off the complex magic needed to bring many of the year’s biggest blockbusters to life,” according to the release.
The spinoff series “Made in Hollywood: Teen Edition” is aimed at teens age 13-16, featuring similar behind-the-scenes stories of filmmaking, special effects techniques and career opportunities focusing on the creative, technical and artistic skills of the motion picture industries, according to the release.
