There’s a lot happening in television on both sides of the pond!
British drama River, and actors Mark Rylance and Sharon Horgan, were winners of the prestigious Golden Nymph Awards at the 56th Monte-Carlo Television Festival.
Among the Entertainment and Children’s programs winners of the 75th Peabody Awards is Wolf Hall, the historical drama starring Oscar® winner Mark Rylance as Thomas Cromwell.
One hundred thirty TV shows from British Commonwealth territories and Ireland were new to the US in 2015, and selecting my fifteen favorites of the year took some doing.
Shows from the UK, New Zealand, and Canada won at the C21 Drama Awards ceremony, held last night at BFI in London.
The licensing agreement between Amazon and PBS has been expanded to include more PBS programs, including those from the public broadcasting network’s British TV line-ups.
The Royal Shakespeare Company is currently performing the multiple 2015 awards-nominated Wolf Hall: Parts One & Two on Broadway, so get your theatre on in New York City, and with a promotion code for reduced priced tickets to boot.
What better reason to stay indoors during the rainy month of April than to watch the US premieres of the highly-anticipated returns of Game of Thrones, Outlander, and Ripper Street, and the critically-acclaimed Wolf Hall. And there’s more besides…
Hmm, given the trailers for the new season of Death in Paradise and the new serial Wolf Hall, it looks like there’s a whole lotta drama going on. (And a few laughs, too.)
Put the resolutions aside and get comfy in front of the telly, when Brit TV favorites return and new ones debut during the PBS 2015 Winter/Spring season and into the summer.
