Announced the winner of third Annual “Woman in Series Award" by Series Mania.
The recipient of this year’s award is Nicola Shindler, Executive Producer and Chief Executive of Quay Street Productions. Nicola Shindler will be presented with her award on March 21 in Lille. In addition, she will be speaking about her career that will look at the relationships she builds with writers, as well as her vision for producing engaging drama for a global audience.

“When we launched the ‘Woman in Series’ Award in 2021, our mission was to highlight and value the work of women within our industry as this is something that is incredibly important to me and close to my heart. I am incredibly honored to present Nicola with our award this year. As the founder of Quay Street Productions, coupled with her 25 years’ experience as a multi award-winning British television producer, Nicola is a true leader in every sense of the word and is certainly worthy of this wonderful award,” comments Laurence Herszberg.
Nicola Shindler says: “I’m really honoured to receive Series Mania’s Woman in Series Award. I love making drama, and to be recognised for my body of work is a privilege. I’ve been lucky enough to work with some of the most incredibly talented people – writers, producers, directors and so many more, who have enabled me to do so, and I have to thank them for their commitment and support. I’m excited for the next chapter with my new production company Quay Street Productions, having just launched our first drama, Nolly, and we’re in production on more exciting dramas.”
Laurence Bachman, President of the association Pour les Femmes dans les Médias comments: “Today, more than ever, we wish to salute, encourage, and reward inspiring women in business and media, with a recognized and remarkable career in the audiovisual industry. Still under-represented in the top leading functions (around 10%), this prize must value the place of women in the media industry and demonstrate that women must feel legitimate and dare. Celebrating those women is one of PFDM’s missions. We are thrilled to give this award to Nicola Shindler. She explores innovative stories working with new and established writers demonstrating her talent as a great producer.”

Nicola Shindler’s inaugural drama under the Quay Street Productions, Nolly, will be presented as an out of competition screening at Series Mania. Quay Street Productions is part of ITV Studios.

Created in 2021, Woman in Series Award went to Christina Sulebakk, GM of HBO Max EMEA, for its first edition and in 2022 to Mo Abudu, CEO, The EbonyLife Group.
