If you love television, do we have a Web site for you. EmmyTVLegends.org, created by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Foundation, launched this week in advance of Sunday’s Emmy Awards. It’s a TV historian’s gold mine. Some 600 interviews — with performers, directors, writers, cinematographers and executives — have been taped for more than a decade by volunteers, including scholars and industry members. So far, about 200 have been posted at the site.
“We really want television fans, and people who have great memories of television they watched growing up, to have fun, to dive in and discover things about the people they grew up with,” Terri Clark, foundation executive director, said.
The Web site is intended to serve those seeking a career in entertainment as well as the public, said archive director Karen L. Herman
