Over the next week, TV academy members will begin receiving Showtime’s official Emmy FYC mailer that includes select episodes from their eligible series. Showtime’s tent-pole show “Homeland,” which won Best Drama Series in 2012 and has been nominated three more times since, leads the pack that also includes last year’s Emmy winners “Ray Donovan” (Hank Azaria for Best Drama Guest Actor) and “Shameless” (Best Comedy Stunts). See select photos below.
Besides “Homeland,” the network’s other drama series featured within the beautifully designed Emmy package are “The Affair,” “Billions,” “Masters of Sex,” “Penny Dreadful” and “Ray Donovan.” Showtime’s lone comedy series represented is “Shameless.”
As for the other categories, Showtime has included limited series “Guerrilla,” variety specials “Sebastian Maniscalco” and “Stephen Colbert’s Live Election Night,” documentary/non-fiction entries “The Circus,” “Gringo,” “Trumped,” “Weiner” and “Zero Days,” and special class program “Madonna: Rebel Heart Tour.”
