ABOUT THE PRODUCER, SHERRY JONES
Sherry Jones is an award-winning producer with dozens of television documentaries to her credit. Based in Washington, D.C. she heads Washington Media Associates, an independent production company.
In addition to a 28-year collaboration with Bill Moyers, she has produced more than 20 films for the PBS documentary series, FRONTLINE. She has also produced dozens of other programs for PBS — including the Emmy-winning WATERGATE PLUS 30: SHADOW OF HISTORY; six documentaries based in the former Soviet Union — including the award-winning FRONTLINE special, RETURN OF THE CZAR; and three specials for ABC NEWS, including PETER JENNINGS REPORTING: THE MISSILES OF OCTOBER, the story of the Cuban missile crisis from the points of view of all three countries involved; HIROSHIMA: WHY THE BOMB WAS DROPPED, broadcast on the 50th anniversary of Hiroshima; and, in June 2004, PETER JENNINGS REPORTING: GUANTANAMO. That film, which was broadcast on the eve of the historic Supreme Court decision in Rasul v. Bush, was the first long-form television investigation into the Bush administration's detention and interrogation policies.
In September, 2004, she produced 9/11: FOR THE RECORD, a NOW WITH BILL MOYERS special. Jones also produced DEAD WRONG: INSIDE AN INTELLIGENCE MELTDOWN, an examination of pre-Iraqi War intelligence — which first aired in August, 2005, as a special edition of CNN PRESENTS.
Her most recent production was MOYERS ON AMERICA: CAPITOL CRIMES, a 90-minute expose of the Jack Abramoff/Tom Delay scandals, broadcast in October, 2006, on PBS.
Sherry Jones is a Fellow of the National Security Archive, and has been honored as a "Woman of Vision" by Women in Film and Video. She holds a Masters degree in Journalism from Northwestern University, and is a member of the Medill School of Journalism's Hall of Fame. Published May 29, 2009.
