Flint's Deadly Water earns a George Foster Peabody Award nomination!

Description by Anne Husted

FRONTLINE’s September 2019 investigation produced and directed by Abby Ellis and her reporting team — Kayla Ruble, Jacob Carah and Sarah Childress — exclusively revealed the unreported toll of Flint, Michigan’s water crisis. Drawing from a two-year long investigation, Flint’s Deadly Water documents an outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease during the water crisis that has continued to claim lives in the city five years after the crisis began. The documentary exposes how the outbreak happened, why it continued for more than a year before state officials alerted the public — and the consequences of that delay for the people of Flint. The documentary was honored with a Scripps Howard Award earlier this year.
