Orbit Digital provides offline editorial systems and support to the producers of both “30 Rock” and HBO’s “John Adams,” and joins PostWorks in congratulating the editorial teams from both shows for their respective Outstanding Picture Editing nominations. Notably, “John Adams” is nominated for Outstanding Miniseries, and another Orbit client production, “A Raisin in the Sun,” is nominated for Outstanding Made For Television Movie.
