  • Print

TORONTO -- The TV series Less Than Kind and The L.A. Complex were among the winners Monday at the Writers Guild of Canada Screenwriting Awards.

Winnipeg-shot Less Than Kind, which airs on The Movie Network, won in the comedy category while the MuchMusic/CW primetime soap The L.A. Complex took the drama trophy at the gala in Toronto.

Best documentary went to A Sorry State, a TVO airing in which filmmaker Mitch Miyagawa explores the meaning of government apologies.

Nabbing the best movies & miniseries category was The Phantoms, which aired on CBC-TV and profiles a New Brunswick basketball team that rebounded from a devastating road crash.

Other winners at the 17th annual awards show included CTV Flashpoint co-creators Mark Ellis and Stephanie Morgenstern, who received the WGC Showrunner Award.

The WGC represents more than 2,100 professional English-language screenwriters across Canada.
