Sharp-eyed viewers of the recent Lifetime Original television movie Miracle Run may have recognized the name of a St. Lawrence graduate in the credits: Tom Patricia '79 is the executive producer of the based-on-a-true-story film.

Patricia, who earned his University degree in government, has over two dozen producer credits on his resume, through his company Patriarch Pictures. Many are made-for-TV movies, and many have been done for the Lifetime Network. Among them is one for which Patricia was nominated for an Emmy Award, From Homeless to Harvard: The Liz Murray Story. The 2003 film was nominated for a total of three Emmy Awards.

In an interview with his hometown newspaper, the Oneida, N.Y., Daily Dispatch, Patricia said that what he enjoys most about his work is that "The whole process is a challenge. You get to mix creative instincts with business instincts, and work with very creative and dynamic people."

Works in progress by Patricia are reported to include another fact-based film for Lifetime and a series for the Sci-Fi Network.
