The College Television Awards have helped launched the careers of industry professionals who have landed jobs on shows like "The Simpsons," "America's Got Talent," "60 Minutes" and "Empire." 

Now, the awards could be a launching pad for Oak Park native Richard C. Bailey, an MFA graduate of the American Film Institute in Los Angeles, who was nominated, along with two classmates, in the comedy category for producing "They Won't Last," according to a statement released by the Television Academy, which puts on the awards. 

The comedy is about a 30-year-old woman who is afraid of commitment and has to grapple with her romantic boyfriend's marriage proposal. 

The 40th College Television Awards will be held on March 21 in Los Angeles.
