EWTN’s ‘Santa Rosa de Lima’ Mini-Series
Wins ACE’s “Cultural Program of the Year” Award
The mini-series also won three other significant awards: Best Actress: Milagros Lopez Arias ("Santa Rosa de Lima"); Best Supporting Actor Luis Galli ("Dr. Juan del Castillo"); and Best Supporting Actress Ana Maria Estrada ("María de Uzátegui y Doña Juana").
“EWTN is honored to have won this award for one of our many Spanish-language productions,” said EWTN Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Michael P. Warsaw. “From the beginning, EWTN Foundress Mother Angelica realized the importance of reaching out to people, not just in their own language, but with content that truly reflects the culture of people we seek to serve. That’s why EWTN offers Spanish speaking viewers both Spanish language television networks (EWTN Español/ and El Canal Católica), and a Spanish language radio network (EWTN Radio Católica Mundial), which operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week, providing top quality Catholic programming that educates, inspires, and entertains.” (Find EWTN at www.ewtn.com/channelfinder.)
John Elson, Director of Acquisitions and CoProductions, was gratified by the award. “This prestigious ACE award shows that quality Catholic television content can be accepted and even celebrated in the secular entertainment world,” he said. “We celebrate this award with all of the members of our EWTN Family whose spiritual and financial support make our original programming possible.”
