Apple TV+ original ‘Little America’ loses out on BAFTA award in International series category
Apple TV+ original series ‘Little America’ failed to take home an award at Sunday’s British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Awards in London, losing out in the International series category to the BBC for their ‘Welcome To Chechnya: The Gay Purge (Storyville)’ documentary.
Apple announced in April that it had been nominated at the BAFTA Awards for ‘Little America,’ which explores the inspiring and heartfelt stories of immigrants in America. The 8-episode first series released in January 2020 and is set to return for a second season later this year.
Also competing for the award were Sky Atlantic with ‘Lovecraft Country’ and Netflix with ‘Unorthodox.’
Apple says: “Inspired by the true stories featured in Epic Magazine, “Little America,” goes beyond the headlines to bring to life the funny, romantic, heartfelt and surprising stories of immigrants in America. The critically lauded series is written and executive produced by Lee Eisenberg, who serves as showrunner, and Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon.”
