The seven Emmy nominations collected by The Reagans was "the salve needed for the wound" left by the politically charged attack unleashed on the biopic when it was originally destined for CBS last fall, according to executive producer Neil Meron. "We always wanted this movie to be judged on its merits, and not on the merits of the controversy," said Meron, who executive produced The Reagans with his longtime partner in Storyline Entertainment, Craig Zadan, and Sony Pictures TV. The vindication was especially sweet as the project not only earned a best telefilm nom but also acting noms for stars James Brolin and Judy Davis and a longform writing bid for scribes Jane Marchwood, Tom Rickman and Elizabeth Egloff, Zadan said.
