SABC1 drama series Home Affairs has been nominated as semi-finalist in the Best Drama Series category in the prestigious International Emmy Awards, the finals of which will take place at the 34th International Emmy Awards Gala to be held in New York later this year.

The selection was done by a jury of leading media experts assembled from 20 countries from the Middle East, North America, Asia and Europe.

An announcement of finalists to compete for the International Emmy Award prize will be made on 9 October, 2006 at MIPCOM in Cannes.

Earlier in 2006, Home Affairs was also selected along with six drama series worldwide for out of competition screening at the Banff Festival in Canada.

The second season of Home Affairs, the ensemble drama about the intricate web of synchronicity in the human existence, is currently broadcasting on SABC1 every Thursday at 21h00.

Home Affairs 2 continues to focus on women's stories - stories which reflect the diversity of the millions of women found within South Africa.

The International TV Academy is a division of the National Television Academy, the largest organisation of global broadcasters with members and representatives from 61 countries and over 250 companies.
