Reservoir Hill Wins Emmy!

Reservoir Hill - Thomas Robins and David Stubbs receive Digital Emmy Award

You may remember the news about Reservoir Hill being nominated for a Digital Emmy, well the series won! Beth Chote (who played Lottie in The Tribe series 5) starred in the series as the lead character Beth Connolly. The series also had a guest appearance by Calen Maivas Paris (Mega in The Tribe 4 & 5).

In a statement released shortly afterward, International Academy of Television, Arts and Sciences president Bruce Paisner said New Zealand had made history by winning its first International Emmy.

Unfortunately Beth was not there at the ceremony, in Cannes – France, to pick up the award with the Reservoir Hill team. Creators Thomas Robins and David Stubbs were in attendance to pick up their award, I’m sure they are over the moon after the hard work that went into the series – congrats to the team on their landmark win!

Maybe this great news could see the production of a second series? Reservoir Hill, like The Tribe, was filmed in Wellington (around Porirua’s Aotea block) and featured local talent. Lucky New Zealand viewers can catch Reservoir Hill as a feature-length version on TV2 on 16th May at 12.00pm. The episodes can also still be seen online by New Zealand residents at TVNZ.

    Carly Neemia (Production Manager) was in Cannes with David Stubbs and Thomas Robins also and well deserved I say. An extremely dedicated and tireless worker is Carly.

    That’s great that Carly went with the guys aswell, sounds like she deserved the trip Sue :)

    I do hope they get a series 2. I also hope someone puts the episode online for us non New Zealanders!

    I saw an interview on TV and apparently they are going to screen it on the box. Congrats for putting NZ digital on the map guys!
