Wolf Entertainment Receives Global Recognition: NATPE x Iris Awards
The National Association of Television Program Executives awarded Wolf Entertainment with the “Award for Excellence, Global Content and Branding” at this year’s Iris Awards Breakfast in New York City.
Epatha Merkerson, an original cast member of Law & Order who currently portrays Sharon Goodwin on Chicago Med, presented the prestigious award to Elliot Wolf, Wolf Entertainment’s Executive Vice President of Digital.
“I came on three and a half years ago, and we were Wolf Films,” said Elliot in his acceptance speech. “Because there was more and more crossover between franchises– Law & Order and One Chicago specifically at that time– there was an opportunity to build out a larger universe.”
The Iris Awards, hosted annually by NATPE, have recognized vanguards in television programming for more than five decades. It has grown into the flagship occasion of a larger, educational initiative by the organization culminating in an annual conference.
“The extraordinary talent and influential content and companies recognized at the Iris Awards this year are indicative of the vibrant event” said JP Bommel, President and CEO of NATPE.
We’re thrilled to accept an Iris Award alongside fellow honorees Inside Edition, Tamron Hall, Alex Paen, Valari Dobson Saab, and Emerson Coleman.
