I'm incredibly proud of our facilities and teams for bringing home two more nominations from the HPA. The work on the 911 earthquake episode, and The Orville are completely different, but both were extremely challenging and rewarding. The diversity of or work really exemplifies the talent and breadth of our creative staff."
