We would like to congratulate the cast and crew and the talented series writer Craig Mazin on this outstanding win and to thank them for the awareness that they have brought to the plight of the many victims of Chernobyl with the series.
As series Executive Producer and Writer Craig Mazin has said himself : ‘You think you know what happened at Chernobyl, but you have no idea…it was hours away from being so much worse’.
This mini-series, reveals to a new global TV audience the ignominy, the betrayal and the heroism behind the deadliest nuclear accident in history. With the passing of time, disasters like Chernobyl can fade from the headlines, the global consciousness, and the memory of ordinary people. And then comes a series after 33 years, confident enough to proclaim itself and its intent with that single, haunted, forever place-named ‘Chernobyl’ and for this we will be forever grateful.
