George Thelen of Thelen Creative created and developed the History Trekker series and produced the half-hour pilot episode, titled History Trekker: Northern California Edition. The pilot episode of the proposed television series, which features people, places, and events that shaped history, is a finalist for a pair of video production awards: the 2014 CreaTiVe Citizen journalist and educator awards given by CreaTV of San Jose, California. Thelen, a freelance content producer, received the 2013 Citizen Journalist Award for his production of the documentary The San Agustín: California Shipwreck, which aired on PBS earlier this year. Winners will be announced on January 10, 2015, at the CreaTV Awards Gala presented by TiVo at the historic California Theatre in downtown San Jose.
