AMC Scores at the Emmys with Broken Trail

NEW YORK, Sept. 17 -- On Sunday, September 16th the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences announced the winners for the 2007 Emmy Awards, with American Movie Channel (AMC) receiving 3 for its first-ever original movie event, Broken Trail. Awards included Outstanding Mini-series, Outstanding Lead Actor in a Mini-series or Movie for Robert Duvall and Outstanding Supporting Actor for a Mini-series or a Movie for Thomas Haden Church.

The following is a statement from AMC General Manager and Executive Vice President Charlie Collier:

"The recognition Broken Trail received on Sunday night from the industry is an affirmation that the original scripted programming AMC is introducing to our audience is of the highest quality. We congratulate Robert Duvall, Thomas Haden Church and the remaining cast and crew on their well deserved Emmy wins and for setting the bar so high.

"As the most watched scripted program in all of cable television in 2006, Broken Trail resonated with critics and viewers across the country and helped set a valuable standard for AMC's original programming in the years to come.

"These nominations set a foundation of aspiration of all our original projects and give us added momentum and excitement with what we are trying to uniquely create at AMC. We thank the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences members for the acknowledgement."

The sweeping epic set in the American West at the close of the 1800s, premiered on AMC on June 25 and 26, 2006 and helped launch the network's commitment to original programming. Broken Trail is a powerful two-part drama set in the American Old West of the late 1800s. The four-hour original movie is an authentic and harrowing tale that follows a veteran cowboy (Robert Duvall) and his nephew (Thomas Haden Church) as they drive a herd of horses from Oregon to Wyoming, their trail crossing with five enslaved Chinese girls. A fateful act of decency plunges their lives into peril and forever changes their destinies. Broken Trail follows the complicated paths of each traveler's life, of love forged on a difficult path and hardships inflicted on innocents lost in America.
