Joe Halderman is back in the news this week, but not for blackmailing a public figure.
This time, the TV news writer, director and producer is up for what could be his eighth Emmy, the Los Angeles Times reports. Halderman is currently serving a six-month jail sentence for attempting to extort money from David Letterman by threatening to expose the "Late Show" host’s sexual affairs with his staff.
Halderman is nominated for “American Girl, Italian Nightmare” – part of CBS’s “48 Hours.”
