TLC’s WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE? Receives Emmy Award Nomination for Structured Reality Program

TLC’s WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE? was honored with an Emmy award nomination in the Structured Reality Program category. This is the series’ third nomination in this category, and last year the show won an Emmy award for Outstanding Picture Editing for a Reality Program. WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE? follows some of today’s most beloved and iconic celebrities as they embark on personal journeys of self-discovery to trace their family trees.

WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE? is produced by Shed Media (a division of Warner Bros. Unscripted and Alternative Television) & Is Or Isn’t Entertainment for TLC. The series is based on an original format created by Wall to Wall Media and Alex Graham. This year’s honorees include Alex Graham, Pam Healey, Lisa Kudrow, Dan Bucatinsky, Nancy Daniels, Howard Lee, Cameo Wallace, Stephanie Schwam, Anna Pousho, Aleta Rozanski and Justin Robertson.

Ancestry, the leading family history company, teams up with TLC as a sponsor of the series. As part of the show sponsorship, Ancestry provides exhaustive family history research on each of the featured celebrities to help make discoveries possible and build out the story of each episode.

The Creative Arts Emmy Awards will be held Saturday, September 9 and Sunday, September 10 at Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, and will air on September 16, 2017 at 8ET on FXX.
