    Framingham, MA September 9, 2015 - The Telly Awards has named MediaBoss Television as a winner in the 36th Annual People's Telly Awards for their dramedy television pilot titled Partners. In addition to recognition from the Silver Telly Council, the judging panel that selects the Telly Awards winners, the Internet community helps decide the People’s Telly Awards winners. With nearly 12,000 entries from all 50 states and numerous countries, winning the People’s Choice is truly an honor.

    Partners follows the career of a female detective in an all-male police station. The pilot was written by Matty Blake and directed by MediaBoss Creative Director & Producer, Ian Barrett. Blake and Barrett are producing partners under their partnership company, Let the Boy Watch. The pair have worked together on several other comedic pilots and a variety of other productions.

    Partners was co-produced and edited by MediaBoss Television. A scripted, ensemble concept, the pilot was captured in Framingham, MA in a single day and featured actors, Jimmy Dunn (The McCarthys), R.J. Kelly (Political Animals), Betsy Beutler (Legit, Scrubs), Dan Schachner (Animal Planet) and Matty Blake (Mystic River, Boardwalk Empire).

    "Filming Partners with MediaBoss and this cast was a like a writer/actor version of going to Disney World: Pure joy and magic,” Blake says. “We had so much fun but we also worked our butts off. A group of professionals getting together and playing our trade on our terms. Laughs yes, but we cared, we toiled, we strove. It wasn’t frivolous, it was rewarding. It’s the best kind of fun. It’s why we do what we do. We love the process!"

    "It was a very fast paced set. We had a ton of set-ups to get through because we only had our cast for one day,” Barrett says. "Everything came together like magic, in the end we had more material than we could use! I can't say enough about how amazing the experience was."

    The Telly Awards was founded in 1979 and is the premier award honoring outstanding local, regional, and cable TV commercials and programs, the finest video and film productions, and online commercials, video and films.
