CR Producers Win Award At MIPCOM

CR Entertainment's producers Nuno Bernardo & Triona Campbell recently won Best International Multi-platform Format Award for their thriller Final Punishment at MIPCOM 2010.
Shot on location in Brazil, this is the second win for this thriller series, which was previously also nominated for an Emmy and for a Rose D'Or.
CR Entertainment said that they were "thrilled" to receive the international award in what has been a busy year for the company, which also picked up the Best Teen TV Show Award at Kidscreen in New York earlier this year for the RTE series Aisling's Diary.
Final Platform is a multi-platform thriller created by Bernardo and set in a futurist female prison where a mysterious force is killing off inmates in the manner they committed their crimes. The series asks the audience to help solve the mystery to save the remaining inmates before they die.
Premiered at last year's Rio De Janeiro Film Festival, the series extended to mobile phones, TV and the Internet and was commissioned by Brazilian Telecom Oi. Final Punishment stars Lívia Maria Senatori from the TV series Brazil's Next Top Model as well as several well-known Brazilian TV stars.
Speaking in Dublin after returning from Cannes Triona Campbell said: "We are thrilled with this international recognition for the project which is now also being produced in Russia as a spin-off. This has been a long road as we originally wanted to shoot the series in Ireland, but couldn't find partners for it at the time which forced us to look abroad and we were incredibly lucky to have received so much support from Brazilian Telecom Oi."
