Well done to the very talented Michaela Coel and the Chewing Gum team who last night took home two awards from the Creative Diversity Network which took place at BAFTA.
Michaela’s brilliant performance as Tracey Gordon (Chewing Gum) saw her take home the On-Screen Talent Award. In the outstanding performance category Retort’s E4 Chewing Gum won the Best Comedy award, a great accolade for the whole team.
Broadcast’s Alex Farber remarked, CDN executive director Deborah Williams said the winners triumphed in a strong field of entries. “They are proof that there is a lot of fantastic talent out there and when producers and broadcasters set their mind to it, they really can make and champion great, memorable content that engages with a wide audience and properly reflects the diversity of all of their viewers,” she added.
