(Albuquerque, NM) Tuesday, February 26, 2013 - ReelzChannel - TV About Movies(R) is proud to acknowledge that Bomb Girls won the Gracie Award(R) for Outstanding Drama in recognition of the show's superior quality in writing and production. Bomb Girls along with other national and grand award winners will be honored at the 38th Annual Gracie Awards(R) Gala to be held on Tuesday, May 21, 2013 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA. The Gracies, presented by the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation and named in honor of the legendary Gracie Allen, recognize the realistic and faceted portrayal of women in entertainment, commercials, news, features and other programs. Bomb Girls takes place during WWII and tells the stories of women who risk their lives in a munitions factory in support of the European front and is produced by Muse Entertainment and Back Alley Film Productions.

"The Gracie Award(R) for Outstanding Drama is a wonderful honor for the Bomb Girls cast, creators and our partners at Muse Entertainment and Back Alley Film Productions," said Stan E. Hubbard, CEO of ReelzChannel. "This recognition is a testament to the quality and care with which Bomb Girls retells the powerful stories about women who experienced World War II from the home front. We're excited to share the second season with our viewers starting March 27."

"What a fantastic achievement for Bomb Girls," said Michael Prupas, President and CEO of Muse Entertainment. "To be recognized with a Gracie Award(R) is a particularly special honor considering that the awards recognize remarkable women and that's exactly what's at the core of Bomb Girls - the stories of fearless women who pushed societal boundaries and stepped into power like nobody before them."

"We're delighted to be recognized by the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation," said Adrienne Mitchell, co-creator of Bomb Girls and Executive Producer at Back Alley Film Productions. "This series honors the incredible stories of the sacrifices made by women working on the home front during World War II and we're proud to bring these stories to life for younger generations."

"We're thrilled Bomb Girls received this award from the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation," said Janis Lundman, co-owner and Executive Producer at Back Alley Film Productions. "The series depicts a very challenging and rewarding period for these women where the dangers from working with bombs went hand in hand with the pride of supporting their family for the first time while also answering the call of duty for their country."

Season two of Bomb Girls begins just after the attack on Pearl Harbor and draws viewers deep into 1942 with its music, fashion, romance and the thrill of being alive in dangerous times. Despite America entering the war, the Axis powers are still winning every major battle. The Allies are beginning to deeply feel the price of combat, complete with casualty lists, rationing, hidden foes, unholy alliances, and the ever-present danger of explosives. Yet at the time same time, the women and men of Victory Munitions find ways to flourish under adversity, to defiantly live in joy, to forge unexpected bonds of friendship and love. In embracing risk, they find unexpected rewards and adventure. While they always know who they are fighting... they're constantly surprised to find who's standing by their side. Bomb Girls stars Oscar(R) nominee and Golden Globe(R) winner Meg Tilly (Agnes of God, The Big Chill), Jodi Balfour (The Sinking of Laconia), Charlotte Hegele (Sundays at Tiffany's), Ali Liebert (Apollo 18), Antonio Cupo (Elegy), Anastasia Phillips (Stoked), Gemini(R) Award winner Michael Seater (18 to Life), multiple Gemini(R) Award nominee Peter Outerbridge (Lucky Number Slevin, Nikita) and Richard Fitzpatrick (The Boondock Saints, Survival of the Dead).
