NBC's Reilly to be honored at Prism nods


NBC Entertainment president Kevin Reilly will receive the Larry Stewart Leadership & Inspiration Award at the 11th annual Prism Awards, set for April 24 at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

The Prism Awards are presented by the Entertainment Industries Council in partnership with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration to honor "the accurate depiction of addictions and mental health issues" in movies, television and other entertainment.

"Kevin Reilly is being honored to recognize NBC's consistent efforts to deal with issues of addiction and mental health accurately, which is reflected by the fact that the network has received more Prism Award nominations than any other broadcast outlet every year since the awards were introduced in 1997," EIC president Bryan Dyak said.

The Larry Stewart Leadership and Inspiration Award is presented for "leadership and inspiration by example." Past recipients include last year's recipient, producer Neal Baer, actor Gerald McRaney, comedian Martin Sheen and TV executive Mindy Herman.
