Documentary on Darryl “DMC” McDaniels Search for His Adopted Parents Wins Emmy Award

dmc.jpgLast night in New York City, DMC: My Adoption Journey—a documentary chronicling Darryl “DMC” McDaniels search for his adopted parents—was awarded an Emmy for Outstanding Arts & Culture Programming. At the age of 35, shortly after the murder of fellow Run-DMC group member Jam Master Jay, DMC discovered that he was adopted. As he embarked on a search for his birth parents, he invited VH1 along to document the process. The result was DMC: My Adoption Journey, the first documentary in the cable network’s Roc Docs series, which debuted in February of 2006. After hooking up with Pamela Slaton, an adoption search specialist and fellow adoptee, McDaniels visits the New York Public Library, the Office of Vital Records, and the hospital where he was born in search of clues. My Adoption Journey beat out titles such as I’m Mike Wallace: A 60 Minutes Tribute from CBS and Cinemax’s Favella Rising for the coveted award.
