MY FAMILY NAMED BEST COMEDY AT TV QUICK AWARDS 2003

DLT Entertainment picks up coveted award voted for by British public

(Cannes MIPCOM 2003) Leading independent production and distribution company DLT Entertainment has won acclaim for its hit sitcom My Family, scooping the much sought after TV Quick Comedy Award 2003.

Beating off stiff competition from comedy shows including Friends and Only Fools and Horses, The Office and Absolutely Fabulous, DLT Entertainment picked up the coveted award at the star-studded ceremony, held on 8 September at the Dorchester Hotel. The TV Quick Awards are now in their 7th year and are voted for by the British TV viewing public.

My Family is the UK’s favourite sitcom, and the BBC’s most successful home-grown hit of recent years. During the broadcast of its fourth season, which ended in August this year, it regularly attracted a 35% share with an audience of nine million in a Friday night primetime slot on BBC One. DLT Entertainment has also been commissioned by the BBC to produce brand new episodes for transmission next year.

Produced by DLT Entertainment UK in association with Rude Boy Productions for BBC ONE, My Family is created by Fred Barron, written by a team of writers and stars highly acclaimed actors Robert Lindsay and Zöe Wanamaker.

It has developed a dedicated viewership both in the UK and internationally, with sales concluded Australia, Belgium, Canada, Croatia, Dubai, Eire, Estonia, Finland, France, Holland, Iceland, Israel, Kenya, Kuwait, New Zealand, Norway, Romania, Slovenia, South Africa and Sweden. DLT Entertainment has the worldwide format rights to the series and BBC Worldwide and DLT jointly handles finished programme sales.

My Family focuses on the life of Ben Harper, a moderately successful family man and dentist. He is also undergoing a mid-life crisis and trying to cope with the bizarre reality of raising his three, very different, teenage children.

Donald Taffner Jr, Vice President DLT Entertainment says: ”We are delighted that My Family has won this prestigious award. We are incredibly proud of the show and both the production and acting talent behind its ongoing success. It is great to have this continued audience acclaim and we look forward to starting production on the new series.”
