Teton Gravity Research (TGR), the global leader in action and adventure lifestyle media, has announced its documentary series Edge of The Earth, produced in collaboration with HBO, has been nominated for two Sports Emmy Awards. The nominations are the latest significant accolades for TGR, which debuted the immersive adventure four-part series in July 2022 documenting four different groups of elite action-adventure athletes on unique, never-before accomplished missions within undiscovered realms of nature.
The series is nominated for Outstanding Camera Work – Long Form as well as Outstanding Promotional Announcement. Directed by Steve Jones and Todd Jones and produced by Drew Holt, Edge of the Earth was filmed far out on the glaciers of Alaska, in the remote mountains of Kyrgyzstan, along the uninhabited West Coast of South Africa, and deep in the dense jungle of Ecuador. The nominations reflect the TGR team’s tireless and talented work throughout the entire series, and the nomination for Outstanding Camera Work acknowledges the efforts of a crack team of cinematographers deployed by TGR in the face of daunting conditions.
The nomination for Outstanding Promotional Announcement showcases the creative partnership between TGR and BOND, led by HBO’s talented marketing team.
“We are excited and proud of the continued critical acclaim garnered by Edge of The Earth, and the recognition of our team’s incredible work by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. None of this would be possible without the belief instilled in us by HBO and their team of Executive Producers Nancy Abraham, Lisa Heller, and Bentley Weiner,” said directors Steve Jones and Todd Jones.
“We are especially proud to receive an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Camera Work, as we’ve dedicated the past 27 years to perfecting the craft of capturing awe-inspiring moments of individuals achieving extraordinary feats in nature’s uncharted territories,” the TGR co-founders added. “This series combined a profoundly talented crew with elite athletes who believe in our ability to tell their stories in a moving and inspiring way. This recognition validates the lengths TGR will go to deliver these remarkable stories.”
Edge of the Earth is currently available on demand on HBO Max. The Sports Emmy Awards winners will be announced on Monday, May 22.
Edge of the Earth is the second collaboration between TGR and HBO that has received critical acclaim following the release of the 2019 film The Final Season. That film, which chronicled the final competitive season for iconic US downhill skier Lindsey Vonn, earned two Sports Emmy nominations, including for Outstanding Camera Work. In 2016, TGR earned two Sports Emmy nominations for its Outside TV series, Higher.
