DUTV's "Off Campus" Receives Emmy Award Nomination
August 22, 2013
Six former Westphal College of Media Arts & Sciences students have been nominated for a NATAS award for their work on “Off Campus,” a sitcom that started as a multidisciplinary student project. They continued to work on the show after graduation, fittingly mirroring the lives of the sitcom’s five main characters navigating their post-graduate professional and personal lives.
Described as a cross between “Friends” and “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” the show was picked up by CBS’ The CW Philly 57 in 2011. “Off Campus” previously earned the Mid-Atlantic Emmy for “Outstanding Achievement in a Student Production” in 2011 and was nominated again in 2012 for “College Production–Arts and Entertainment/Cultural Affairs.”
For its third consecutive nomination, “Off Campus” is one of the two productions nominated in the “College/University–Long Form: Fiction” category by the Mid-Atlantic Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.
