“Rare breed”: Fleabag wins two Broadcast Awards!

3 February 2017

Fleabag has been named Best Multichannel Programme and Best Original Programme at the Broadcast Awards 2017.

In the Original Programme Category, the judges described the series as a “rare breed”. They went on to say “The Two Brothers series was also a shining example of how to open up a theatrical piece for TV. Many strands of Waller-Bridge’s monologue survived the transition thanks to her conspiratorial pieces to camera, often in her character’s most intimate moments, but the story arc was brilliantly opened up by a compelling structure anchored by career-best performances from Olivia Colman, Bill Patterson and Hugh Dennis.”

The judges also noted the significance of Fleabag‘s conception on the online-only BBC Three. “A fresh new talent with a unique voice has exploded onto our screens”.  Another judge praised the series for being “bold and unapologetically frank, with modern moral dilemmas dealt with to tragicomic perfection”.

Star and writer of the series Phoebe Waller-Bridge was accompanied to the awards by the show’s executive producers Harry and Jack Williams, director Harry Bradbeer, producer Lydia Hampson, the theatre show’s director Vicky Jones, and Claire Evans and Sarah Hampson from Two Brothers Pictures.
