CPL Productions show Hounslow Diaries has won the Broadcast Digital Award for Best Short-Form Comedy.
Organised by Broadcast magazine, the awards celebrate leading digital content from across the UK, recognising and rewarding the most dynamic digital channels and programmes, effective and relevant second screen content, multi-platform projects and original content produced online.
Hounslow Diaries is written by and stars Ambreen Razia (BBC Talent Hotlist 2017), inspired by her smash hit play, and is produced by CPL Productions for BBC Three.
Shaheeda, Tash and Leonie are three West London college students with big dreams, big attitudes, and big plans. From fights on the night bus to yet another ‘family’ wedding, mosque class to fake IDs, new hijab swags to cooking up schemes on Hounslow High Street, these girls are determined to have the best time – fun first, consequences second. Bouncing between being good, modern Muslim girls and living their best lives, they are three smart, young, Asian women in a bold, provocative, new comedy.
The show is script edited by Holly Walsh, produced by Charlie Coombes and executive produced by Arabella McGuigan and Danielle Lux for CPL Productions, and the Commissioning Editor for the BBC is Alex Moody.
