Bancrofts, an HBO series about a small-town family, won an Emmy for best drama series last week for its third season.
The network said the Emmy win is for its “dramatic, moving, and thoughtful portrayal of a fictional family” and “an incredible cast that brings the family to life.”
The Emmy win was the network’s most prestigious for the drama series category, which is currently in its second season.
The Emmy winner for best series was for the two-hour drama series “The Dollhouses,” which starred the late Diane Duvall as the title character and her four children, and David Bowie as the patriarch and his wife, Betty.
The Emmy for outstanding comedy series was also for “The Ballad of Billy & Mandy,” which is based on the true story of the band “Mandy” that toured the country in the 1960s.
“The Dolls” was a collaboration between HBO and Disney, and it starred the voices of Duvalls daughter, Emily Duvallion.
The series has been described as “a unique take on a family of dolls and their family,” and HBO said in a statement: “This show is filled with genuine, funny, heart-wrenching moments.
Each week, the show challenges viewers to grapple with what it means to be human and to love one another.
The Dollhouse” is produced by Walt Disney Television Studios, which will produce a second season in the coming months.
