Madrid Noir Wins Outstanding Interactive Media Award At First-Ever Children And Family Emmy
By: Atlas V
"Madrid Noir was first and foremost a labor of love," said producer Lawrence Bennett shortly after the win. "The amount of energy and passion poured into it by the whole team was truly unbelievable. This Emmy is for every single member of that team. It is a monumental achievement to take an idea formed in the pub and take it all the way to the top. Madrid Noir was my first piece of long-form scriptwriting and was written and created throughout the difficulties of the pandemic. This recognition is a testament to the resilience and creative flair of those team members and to the power of the medium to touch people's hearts."
Madrid Noir follows a disenchanted young woman, Lola, as she arrives in Madrid to the empty apartment her estranged uncle left behind after being declared dead. Soon, Lola is compelled to dig into her memories, where she'll pick up her uncle's shadowy trail and attempt to piece together the puzzles of the past. Staged as an awe-inspiring theatre production, this charming mystery unfolds across a city that lives in the night, a Madrid now lost to time.
"Writing on Madrid Noir was a truly collaborative, creative, and joyful journey, from start to end," said Lydia Rynne. "I fell in love with the thrilling world and unique characters whilst writing them, and I'm chuffed to bits that so many others have connected with it too. To me, Madrid Noir is about determination, as we follow a little girl trusting her gut and carrying on with her mission, even when she's lost and frightened in the middle of a big, strange city. It's humbling to know that the Madrid Noir team's determination to tell this story has been recognized too,"
