Channel 4’s critically acclaimed hit “It’s A Sin” and Netflix’s global smash “Lupin” were awarded the national and international drama accolades respectively.
The cast of Channel 4’s “We Are Lady Parts” were presented with the Best Comedy Series award by this year’s Edinburgh TV Festival international editor, Tan France.
BBC One was crowned Channel of the Year, while Channel 4 won seven awards across the On Demand, Drama, Comedy, Actor, Factual and Breakthrough Talent categories.

The awards were presented in a digital ceremony hosted on the Edinburgh TV Festival’s Twitter handle by rising comedy star Kae Kurd, who prepared exclusive stand-up material for the event.
Edinburgh TV Festival creative director Stewart Clarke said: “Huge congratulations to all of the Edinburgh TV Awards winners, a line-up that truly takes in the best talent, producers, writers, and channels – and celebrates the incredible work of the brilliant people in our industry.
