Other nominees: Disney Channel's "Phil of the Future" and "That's So Raven," Nickelodeon's "Just for Kicks" and the "Reading Rainbow on PBS.
"Look at the company we're in," said executive producer Rann Watumull. "We're thrilled that we're included with such big name shows.
Our show is playing up there with the best of the best." Watumull also noted that the other shows have teams of writers, but "Flight 29 Down" has only one: DJ McHale, who also directs.
