Not sure if this has been discussed before, but I’m very curious…
Will ‘Luther’ now have to compete as a Drama series under the new Emmy rules??
No. Unfortunately it will still have to compete as a Limited Series, because a comedy/drama show must air at least 6 episodes in eligibility period to be eligible for the corresponding category. Luther only aired 2 episodes this season.
The categories name may be “Limited Series/Tv Movie” but it actually covers all the following;
-True Miniseries and TV Movies
-Theatrical films that couldn’t get a theatrical release
-Filmed stage productions
-One hour final episodes of regular shows
