This is pretty cool.  WKU grad and Hartford native, Kirker Butler, is hard at work these days co-executive producing and writing the sitcom The Neighbors.  And, now, his show has garnered an Emmy award nomination!

The Neighbors was nominated for a 2013 Primetime Emmy Award for Original Music and Lyrics for the song "More of Less the Kind of Thing You May or May Not Possibly See on Broadway."  The song was written by Academy Award-winning composer Alan Menken, who just may score an Emmy Award when they are presented September 22nd.

Congratulations to Kirker Butler for scribing a show that is in the Emmy mix!  In case you're not familiar with the show, here's the official trailer from the series.

Butler's other television credits include Family Guy and The Cleveland Show.  Butler is a 1993 WKU theatre and dance graduate.
