'Mongrels' nominated for two RTS Craft and Design Awards
The series, which revolves around the lives of five anthropomorphic animals who hang around the bin yard of a pub on the Isle of Dogs, London, has been nominated for two awards which are given within the areas of TV production. The winners will be announced on 24th November.
Production designer Simon Rogers and his team have been nominated for the award for "Production Design – Entertainment and Non-Drama". The other nominees are Channel 4 sitcom The IT Crowd and BBC children's comedy Hounded.
Film editor Nigel Williams and his team have also been nominated for the "Tape and Film Editing – Entertainment and Situation Comedy" award, alongside Channel 4 sitcoms Peep Show and Pete Versus Life.
Mongrels was first broadcast in summer 2010. The show stars Rufus Jones as metrosexual "urbane" fox Nelson; Lucy Montgomery as it-bitch Afghan hound Destiny; Dan Tetsell as "borderline-retarded" cat Marion; Katy Brand as aggressive pigeon Kali; and Paul Kaye as ultra-violent foul-mouthed fox Vince.
A second series of Mongrels has been commissioned.
