Three Law-Related Dramas Win Peabody Awards

CBS' legal drama The Good Wife, FX's Justified (based on an Elmore Leonard character), and Sherlock: A Study in Pink (an updating of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes), which ran on many PBS stations this year, have won Peabody Awards. Here's a link to the Peabody Awards home page, which lists all winners, including Rupert Gould's version of Macbeth, starring Patrick Stewart, aired on PBS, Spike Lee's "If God Is Willing and da Creek Don't Rise," aired on HBO, PBS/POV's look back at Daniel Ellsberg, "The Most Dangerous Man in America," and WILL-TV (Champaign, Illinois)'s "The Lord Is Not On Trial Here Today," an examination of the separation of church and state.

For those who are interested, THE LORD IS NOT ON TRIAL HERE TODAY will be broadcast on PBS in May. Check the listings with your local station for dates and times. The documentary is a must for all law students.
