The Writers Guild of America West has tapped veteran scribe William Blinn as the recipient of its Paddy Chayefsky Laurel Award for Television. The award, which honors lifetime achievement for outstanding TV writing, will be presented at the WGA Awards ceremony on Feb. 7 at the Century Plaza in Los Angeles. William Blinn was a writer and executive producer on the TV series Fame.
According to one site that I read, Debbie Allen will be on hand during the ceremony to perform an interpretive dance.
Congratulations Mr. Blinn!
