José Andrés & Family In Spain nails two nominations
We’re excited to share that José Andrés & Family In Spain – the docu-series Gabriel Edvy BFE was the Lead Editor on – has been nominated for a Daytime Emmy and two Critics Choice Real TV awards. Editors Daniel Birt and George Reynolds also worked on the show. So, we couldn’t be happier! This is a remarkable achievement and a testament to the hard work of our Editors and Nutopia, the show’s production company.
If you have yet to see it, it’s definitely worth a look! It follows the journey of José Andrés, the famous chef and humanitarian, who travels across Spain with his three daughters, exploring its rich culinary heritage. From Barcelona to Andalusia, Valencia to the Canary Islands, and even Asturias, where José was born and raised, the series is a gastronomic adventure like no other! But it’s not just a travel and cooking show. It’s also a proud tribute to fatherhood and Spain with its traditions.
“Finding a unique voice and style can often be an uphill battle, especially when working with new talent. Luckily for me, I worked with a fantastic team at Nutopia, and together we found the right path.” Gabriel Edvy
We caught up with Gabriel, who shared her thoughts on the nomination:
“Being the lead editor of a brand-new series is always a challenge. There are so many different directions a program can take. Finding a unique voice and style can often be an uphill battle, especially when working with new talent. Luckily for me, I worked with a fantastic team at Nutopia, and together we found the right path […]. Executive Nicola Moody was very hands-on and supportive and gave us [editors] time for thorough conversations. I could also count on showrunner Anuar Arroyo for support.
All of the edit producers were fantastic […]. My creativity, ideas, and input were heard, and they placed their trust in my skills and let me get on with it. It wasn’t always easy, but we created a fantastic show in the end. And I’m glad to see it doing so well!”
The series is available now on Discovery+ in the UK. The Critics Choice Association will announce the winners of the Real TV Awards on 15 June, and The Daytime Emmy awards night is on 16 June. We’ll be rooting for Gabriel, Dan, George and Nutopia – and we hope you will too.
