Spanish fictional series El Ministerio del Tiempo (Ministry of Time), produced by RTVE, has been awarded a Gold Panda Award at China's Sichuan TV Festival.
The series director, Marc Vigil, was also awarded Best TV Series Director at the festival.
The recognition follows an Ondas Award as Spain's Best Series of the year, an ALMA award for Best Script, and a Review award at Vitoria's FesTVal.
RTVE, together with Onza Partners, is already producing and filming a second 13-episode season of the series. The cast includes actors from the first season - Rodolfo Sancho, Aura Garrido and Nacho Fresneda – as well as new faces such as Hugo Silva and Sergio Peris-Mencheta.
RTVE's historical short series Prim was also nominated at the Gold Panda Awards in the categories of Best Photography and Best TV Movie.
The Sichuan TV Festival is held every two years in China as an international event for the content industry and has become one of the best places to sell and distribute content to the Asian market.
