Irish-shot mini-series ‘Titanic: Blood and Steel’ was among the big winners at last week’s prestigious Monte Carlo TV Festival.
The Irish/Italian co-production picked up the award for Outstanding European Producer in the drama category with the prize going to Italian production company De Angelis Productions (DAP) and the show’s executive producers Guido De Angelis, Nicola De Angelis and Ciaran Donnelly. Irishman Donnelly (The Tudors) also directed the 12-part series.
Other winning productions on the night included global hits such as ‘Desperate Housewives’ and ‘CSI: Crime Scene Investigation’. HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones,’ which was shot on-location in Northern Ireland, picked up the prize for Outstanding International Producer.
Speaking to IFTN, Donnelly said he was delighted for the show. He added: "It’s wonderful to have the series acknowledged in this way, it' a great endorsement of cinematic television drama and the power of the story."
