It has one of the most unlikeliest titles in television, but Discovery Channel’s Abalone Wars continues to notch up the successes, winning Best Documentary Series at the 20th Asian Television Awards held this week in Singapore.

Abalone Wars has been an incredibly successful local franchise and one that we’re extremely proud of,” said Mandy Pattinson, EVP & GM Discovery Networks Asia Pacific – Australia, New Zealand & Pacific Islands.

“It showcases one of the most dangerous jobs in Australia; the risks are real and the stakes are high. Our audiences really resonate with this and have come to love our abalone crews and their town of Port Lincoln in South Australia. We were thrilled to receive Most Outstanding Documentary at the Australian ASTRA Awards in 2013 and are delighted to now see industry recognition on an international stage.”
