The much-lauded Netflix documentary, Heroin(e), about three women fighting against the opioid crisis in Huntington, West Virginia, has been nominated for another award. On Thursday, the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences nominated the short film for a News and Documentary Emmy in the outstanding short documentary category. Heroin(e) follows Huntington Fire Department chief Jan Rader, Brown Bag Ministries founder Necia Freeman and Cabell Huntington drug court Judge Patricia Keller, as they deal with being on the front lines of fighting drug abuse. All those involved in the documentary have been interviewed in the media. Rader has made appearances on NBC’s “Meet the Press” and on public radio’s “Studio 1-A.” In January, Heroin(e) was among five films nominated for an Oscar in the Best Documentary Short category.
