Murphy Brown (CBS)




Murphy Brown
 1991 | CBS, Shukovsky/English Productions, Warner Brothers Television, Burbank, California

Today, Murphy Brown joins the short list of situation comedies that have earned Peabody recognition. Like All in the Family, Murphy Brown weaves current issues into its scripts with intelligence and wit. Like The Mary Tyler Moore Show, it features a strong ensemble cast who portray a diverse set of leading and supporting characters. Like M*A*S*H, Murphy Brown reveals a personal vision of the world through the exceptional work of its producers and writers. Like all of these, week after week, year after year, it is among the funniest shows on television. In recognition of CBS and Warner Brothers Television, Executive Producers Diane English and Joel Shukovsky, an outstanding writing and directing team, and the superb cast, led by Candice Bergen (whose father received the Peabody Award in 1945), a 1991 Peabody is presented to Murphy Brown.
