Jim: The James Foley Story wins an Emmy

September 16, 2016

Jim: The James Foley Story, the HBO documentary I worked on last year, just took home an Emmy. The documentary tells the story of American journalist James Foley who was captured by ISIS. In the documentary I portray Danish journalist Daniel Rye who got to know James Foley well after also being captured. The movie was directed by James Foley's childhood friend, Brian Oakes. The Emmy was for 'Exceptional Merit in Documentary Filmmaking' and you can see the other winners of the 2016 Creative Arts Emmys, Night Two, here: http://www.cbs8.com/story/33069569/2016-creative-arts-emmys-night-two-the-complete-winners-list I am incredibly proud to have been a part of telling such an important story and congratulations to the whole team on a very well deserved Emmy win!
