GRAND FORKS, N.D. – Through These Doors, the student-produced series that takes viewers insider the locker room of the University of North Dakota men’s hockey program, has been nominated for a 2013 Upper Midwest Regional Emmy.

It is one of six nominees in the Best Sports Program Series category. Other nominees include the Minnesota Wild Hockey Club’s Becoming Wild, Midco Sports Network’s Midco Sports Magazine, and FOX Sports North’s Vikings GamePlan, Wild Live and Woog Remembers.

Through These Doors premiered during the 2011-12 season and offered UND fans unprecedented access to one of the most storied programs in NCAA hockey. Produced and edited by UND Athletics student interns, weekly episodes of Through These Doors aired on UNDsports.com for the past two seasons and featured locker room, bench and road trip access, high definition game highlights, and candid interviews with student-athletes and coaches. In March 2012, the show was spotlighted in a NYTimes.com article.

Earlier this month, it was announced that the show would transition from a weekly web-only series to a television series that will also air twice a month on Midco Sports Network as part of the network’s Friday night UND lineup.

The winner will be announced at the 14th annual Upper Midwest Regional Emmy Awards Gala on Saturday, Sept. 28, at the State Theater in Minneapolis.

The Upper Midwest Chapter of the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences is a membership organization dedicated to excellence in television by honoring exceptional work, past and present; providing professional development and outreach; and nurturing the next generation of television professionals.
