Broadchurch Wins Best Returning Drama Series At C21 Media Awards


Broadchurch has won a prestigious award in C21’s International Drama Awards, which are voted for by the world’s leading scripted commissioners and buyers.

It was announced at last night's ceremony that that it had scooped the award in the Best Returning Drama Series category against the likes of Humans, Top Of The Lake: China Girl and Ordinary Lies.

Of the series C21Media say "Broadchurch’s third and final chapter built on and added to the previous seasons’ domestic and worldwide success and helped define ITV as a home for quality drama. The extensively-researched crime drama tackled the difficult and important subject of sexual assault. Boosted by authentic performances and a beautifully cinematic landscape, Chris Chibnall’s distinct poetic vision captivates, thrills and entertains."

The annual awards feature  572 entries across 11 categories, with C2Media stating that "the finalists reflect the prolific drama output over the past 12 months".

The chairman of the judges, C21 editor-in-chief and managing director David Jenkinson, said: “With nearly 100 commissioners and buyers voting for these awards, they really are the most considered television drama awards in the international content business. The standard has been exceptional this year and we are delighted there were so many stellar entries.”

Broadchurch came to an end after three successful series earlier this year.
