Latino-Americans series, largely written by Chowder, wins Peabody Award

A six-part PBS series, The Latino-Americans, has been awarded a 2014 George Foster Peabody award.  Chowder developed the series, created the many proposals that got funding for it, and then wrote five shooting scripts.  His credit was “Consulting Producer.”

The Peabody citation reads: “A revelation no doubt for many viewers, the documentary series’ six fascinating installments traced a people’s history that’s older than the United States itself and showed how Latinos, rendered to foreigners in a land their ancestors colonized, are now reshaping it.”
