Nominated for 10 awards, it won a Rosie for best TV drama of the year as well as the best acting award for Edmonton’s Shaun Johnston. Produced by SEVEN24 Films, the series took home trophies for direction, cinematography, editing and sound. Roseanne Supernault was named best actress for her work in another made-in-Edmonton production.

Scott who, along with co-producer Jesse Szymanski, also took home the Rosie for best production reflecting cultural diversity. Read more.
