We Are Lady Parts Creator to be Awarded Rose d’or

Nida Manzoor, the creator of TV series We Are Lady Parts is set to receive the emerging talent accolade at this year’s international Rose d’Or TV awards.

Manzoor has gone from working as a runner at a post-production house and making short films to directing BBC comedy and episodes of Doctor Who. All the while pitching the idea of a show about an all-woman Muslim punk band to broadcasters. Channel 4 premiered the show We Are Lady Parts in May 2021. The show is also available on the US streaming platform Peacock.

Manzoor said: “Making We Are Lady Parts has been a dream come true and to see how warmly the show has been received has meant the world to me. I am totally indebted to my brilliant cast and crew. Thank you to Rose D’or for this honour!”

Jean Philip De Tender, of the European Broadcasting Union,said: “Each of these artists have in them an ability to resonate with audiences, to identify with their experiences, to offer something that they recognise and can relate to. This cannot be taught; it can barely be defined. But it embodies the fact that all these talents are both one of us and an aspiration for us. I congratulate them all.”

The awards will be presented at a streamed ceremony, hosted by Sue Perkins, on Monday 29th November at 7.30pm.
