East West 101 wins Accolade in LA

The third season of SBS drama East West 101 has won an award at The Accolade Competition in Los Angeles.

It picked up the Award of Excellence: Miniseries prize, which it also collected for its second season in 2010.

Two other Aussie projects were also recognised: Last Stand at Nymboida in the History category and The Red Centre as Commercial / Infomercial.

The Accolade Competition is an international, virtual awards contest which recognises exceptional achievement in craft and creativity, including first-time filmmakers.

East West 101, which has previously collected AFIs, Logies, and AWGIES premieres its third and final season at 8:30pm next Wednesday on SBS ONE.


  1. I really hope the producers reconsider & look at doing another series.
    This is the best police drama that has ever been done in Australia, great scripts, great production, brilliant acting.
    Please do another series, but promote it much harder through the media.

  2. Looks like there could be real basis to produce a 4th season, especially with the international attention its gaining.
    How about some new cast members though?
    The same faces and voices – except Hany’s do grate a bit after three years.
    Knapman Wyld, this is your golden goose so don’t kill it.

  3. This is an absolutely fantastic show, I can’t believe it will be the final series. Great acting and exceptional storylines relating to Australian multicultural issues. It deserves all the awards given to it. More Australian drama should be produced and shown like this, and less of the cheesy us series ie. Csi franchise!

  4. I’ll definitely tune it for the 3rd season. I haven’t sat through a full episode of this show, so hopefully I can get into it. I definitely need more drama on Wednesdays now that BIg Love finished.
