The cast and producers of the digital series The Bay on Amazon Prime have a major reason to celebrate. It won the coveted 2020 Daytime Emmy Award for “Outstanding Digital Drama Series.” This award was presented remotely on June 26 in a virtual ceremony that was televised on CBS.
Kristos Andrews, who stars as Pete Garrett in The Bay, also serves as an executive producer on the show. He spoke with Greek Reporter this past April about the upcoming 10th anniversary of the show.
Andrews is also nominated for “Outstanding Lead Actor in a Digital Drama Series,” but the digital acting categories will be announced on Sunday, July 19, in a separate streaming Emmy ceremony.
The Bay bested competition from such hit digital drama series as Studio City (Amazon Prime), After Forever (Amazon Prime), Dark/Web (Amazon Prime), and Eastsiders (Netflix). Executive producers Gregori J. Martin and Kristos Andrews (who also stars in The Bay as lead actor Pete Garrett) accepted the award virtually on the show’s behalf.
“We are eternally grateful and humbled by this win. On behalf of #TheBayFamily thank you @DaytimeEmmys and this year’s judges for the win. It takes an army and we love our army. Congrats to all of this year’s winners and all the amazing nominees #BingeTheBay,” they exclaimed via a tweet.
