Hollywood is the entertainment capital of the world, with London at a very close second. Many of the UK’s series have made it stateside and British actors and behind the scenes talent are respected all over the world, but British web series still seem to be ignored in the UK. BAFTA recognises film, TV and video games, but this wonderful new medium is still being ignored.
Lisa Gifford’s web series 3some already has an abundance of awards and accolades, with no less than 17 combined international awards and nominations. The series boasts actors from Coronation Street, Eastenders. Emmerdale, 2 Point 4 Children, Doctor Who and more. Despite its success, it and other web series are ignored in the UK.
In 3some ROB (Euan King) and JENNY (Lisa Gifford), a thirty-something couple living together in a trendy part of East London, are about to split up – spectacularly!

This wonderful series is directed and written by Lisa Gifford and Produced by Elisar Cabrera. It stars Lisa Gifford (Sweetheart), Peter Halpin (Mermaid of the East), Euan King (MacBeth), Annette Badland (Eastenders) and Simon Fisher Becker (Doctor Who).
