Vying for the top prize, Program of the Year, are last year's winner The Handmaid's Tale, This Is Us, Atlanta, The Americans, The Good Place and Killing Eve. Meanwhile, Atlanta -- the 2017 Outstanding Achievement in Comedy winner -- will compete in the category against Barry, GLOW, The Good Place, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and One Day at a Time. On the drama side, The Americans, The Crown, The Good Fight, Killing Eve and This Is Us will give last year's Outstanding Achievement in Drama victor The Handmaid's Tale a run for its money.
The TCA Awards celebrate the top series, producers and performances of the 2017-18 television season, as selected by the media organization’s membership of over 200 professional television critics and journalists from the United States and Canada.
Robin Thede, host of BET's late-night show The Rundown With Robin Thede, will serve as host at the exclusive event on Saturday, Aug. 4, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California, where winners will be announced. Honorees for the Career Achievement and Heritage Award will be announced at a later date.
