Big Talk, ‘Mum’ and ‘Cold Feet’ nominated for Broadcast Awards 2017

Big Talk Productions has been nominated in three categories at this year’s Broadcast Awards.

Big Talk’s Mum and Cold Feet have picked up nominations for this year’s Broadcast Awards, in the categories of Best Comedy Programme and Best Drama Series respectively.

Big Talk Productions also secured a nod for Best Independent Production.

Mum, written by Stefan Golaszewski, and which was described as a ‘subtle masterpiece’ by The Times, stars Lesley Manville, Peter Mullan, Sam Swainsbury, Lisa McGrillis, Ross Boatman, Dorothy Atkinson, Marlene Sidaway and Karl Johnson. The comedy reunited the creative team behind the BAFTA award-winning sitcom for BBC Three’s Him and Her and aired in May.

Cold Feet, written and created by Mike Bullen and starring James Nesbitt, Hermione Norris, Robert Bathurst, John Thomson and Fay Ripley, triumphantly returned to ITV for a new eight-part series in September, reuniting the Manchester-based ‘fiftysomething’ friends as they encountered the minefield of middle age.

The Broadcast Awards recognise and reward the UK’s most groundbreaking and successful content, creators and channels, with the ceremony taking place on 1st February 2017 at London’s Grosvenor Hotel.
