During ceremonies in Philadelphia, the 2013 Mid-Atlantic Emmy for Outstanding Interview/Discussion Series was presented to executive producer Sandra King and associate producer Tania Ivanova. The winning entry featured three Due Process episodes, all aired on NJTV. They are:
- “Eyewitnesses” and their fallibility in criminal cases.
- “The Making of Lee Boyd Malvo,” on how an abused and abandoned teenager – now serving a life sentence in solitary confinement – became the younger District of Columbia sniper.
- “Slavery and Lincoln,” which traced the 16th President’s path from racist to Great Emancipator.
Hosted by King and criminal defense and civil rights attorney Raymond Brown, Due Process is recorded on the Rutgers Livingston campus at the iTV Studio. The program can be seen on NJTV Sundays at 9:30 am and 7:00 pm and Tuesdays at 11:30 pm. The winning episodes, and all 18 seasons of Due Process, are available on-demand at www.dueprocesstv.rutgers.edu.
Along with King, co-executive producers for the program are Rutgers Senior Vice President and General Counsel John Farmer, Rutgers–Newark Law School Acting Dean Ronald Chen, and University Professor Raphael Caprio of the Bloustein School.
