In a powerful collaboration between NRBTV, FOUR:2 Media, and Moody Church Media, a documentary on the life and legacy of the provocative monk Martin Luther, A CALL FOR FREEDOM, has received five Emmy® Award nominations from the Chicago Midwest Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS).
A CALL FOR FREEDOM, shot in Germany, is no dry history lesson, but delves into the passion and heart of Martin Luther. Hosted by best-selling author Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer, it presents eye-opening insights into how the Reformation still influences us today.
Troy Miller, NRBTV President and Executive Producer of A CALL FOR FREEDOM, said, “This was an incredible project that started off with Dr. Lutzer’s passion for the reformation, and more importantly the Gospel. I’m very indebted to the teams at FOUR:2 Media and Moody for exceptional production work, writing, and editing. This was an outstanding project to be part of.”
“These nominations are a great encouragement to me,” said Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer, Pastor Emeritus at The Moody Church “and more importantly, emphasize the need for the message of the Reformation to be heard anew in a world that is short on good news. Joel Mains and his team from TLN deserve credit for making this period of history come alive with stimulating interaction and relevance.”
As part of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, the Chicago/Midwest Chapter is the standard bearer for excellence in the television broadcasting industry and the gatekeepers of the prestigious Emmy ® Awards in the Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin region.
