BBC drama directed by Regent’s alumna has been nominated for a BAFTA award

BBC drama, Vigil, directed by Regent’s University London alumna, Isabelle Sieb, has received a BAFTA nomination. 

The series follows the mysterious disappearance of a Scottish fishing trawler and a death onboard a Trident nuclear submarine, which draws the police into conflict with the Navy and British security services.

Vigil has been nominated for an award in the Best Drama Series category, competing with BBC Three’s In My Skin, ITV’s Manhunt: The Night Stalker and ITV’s Unforgotten. The drama has also been renewed for a second series on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.

Isabelle, who graduated in 2013 from Regent’s with a BA (Hons) in Screenwriting & Producing, is a multi BAFTA and Royal Television Society Award-nominated film and television director. 

In addition to directing Vigil, she was lead director for Sky One's The Athena, directed episodes of BBC One's hit show Shetland and is currently directing upcoming Amazon Prime Video series, The Devil’s Hour.

The BAFTA awards recognise and celebrate the very best in television craft and television programmes broadcast in the UK. The 2022 TV Awards ceremony will take place on Sunday 8 May on BBC One and BBC One HD.

Congratulations to Isabelle on this accomplishment.
