Staged Nominated In Rose d'Or Awards

Lockdown comedy series Staged is up for another award, appearing in the shortlist for the prestigious Rose d'Or Awards, announced today. Now in their 60th year, the awards celebrate a gold standard for excellence and achievement in International TV and Audio productions.
