Callboys genomineerd voor Emmy Award.

Callboys genomineerd voor Emmy Award.

Regisseur en maker Jan Eelen: "Dit voelt onwerkelijk".

Woensdag 27 september 2017 — Jan Eelen en zijn Callboys mogen hun tuxedo’s uit de kast halen, want zij worden in november verwacht op de International Emmy Awards in New York.

Callboys, een fictiereeks van FBO en Woestijnvis voor zender VIER, sleepte een nominatie in de wacht in de categorie Comedy. Dat maakte de internationale academie vandaag bekend voor de rest van de wereld. In totaal komen 44 genomineerden in 11 categorieën en uit 18 verschillende landen samen op 20 november in het Hilton in NewYork waar de winnaars bekend zullen worden gemaakt.  

Regisseur en bedenker Jan Eelen: “Ja, dit is wel heel fijn. Door de nominatie zelf uiteraard,  maar eigenlijk nog meer doordat we samen met Alan Partridge's Scissored Isle geselecteerd zijn in de categorie Comedy. Steve Coogan, de Britse acteur en comedian die Alan Partridge speelt en schrijft, is al heel lang een enorm inspirerend voorbeeld voor mij. Ik ontdekte hem toen ik nog aan het Ritcs studeerde met zijn fictieve talkshow Knowing me, Knowing You (1994) en de man is sindsdien geniale dingen blijven maken. Ik volg hem in alles wat hij doet en nu mogen wij plots met hem een Emmy-nominatie delen. Dat voelt onwerkelijk. ”
