Battlestar Galactica executive producers Ronald D. Moore and David Eick were on hand in New York June 5 to accept a prestigious Peabody Award for the SCI FI Channel original series. They were joined by cast members Edward James Olmos, Mary McDonnell, Jamie Bamber, Katee Sackhoff and Grace Park at the 65th annual Peabody Awards ceremony, hosted by TV satirist Jon Stewart, which took place at the historic Waldorf-Astoria hotel. The show’s writing staff was also in attendance.
Peabody winners were announced in April by the event’s organizer, the University of Georgia. The awards honor “distinguished achievement and meritorious service by radio and television networks, stations, producing organizations, cable television organizations and individuals.”
