Well done Team Gum!
Series 2 of Chewing Gum won Best Scripted Programme at the Broadcast Digital Awards 2017 which took place at The Brewery on 5th July. The judges described the show as “fresh, funny and unique – a joyful show to watch”, …and “brilliantly written and executed”, and the hugely talented Michaela Coel now has a second Broadcast Digital Award to add to her ever growing trophy collection as the show also won in the same category in 2016.
Broadcast Magazine said:
“From a sex club to a book club, and a winning cameo from Grime artist Stormzy, series two took Coel’s creation – which has its origins in her play Chewing Gum Dreams – to bold new heights (…)and manages to combine comedy and drama without compromising either.”
Both series of Chewing Gum are available on All4 in the UK and Netflix worldwide.
