The nominations for this year’s Edinburgh TV Awards have been announced, and two British Disney+ Originals have picked up a nomination.

“Extraordinary” has been nominated in the Best Comedy Series category, going up against “Derry Girls”, “Big Boys”, “Everyone Else Burns”, “Trying”, and “Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared”. The series follows Jen, a young, painfully self-aware woman who lives in a world where everyone has a superpower… except her. From BAFTA, Golden Globe, Emmy, and Peabody Award-winning production company Sid Gentle Films, this is a fresh, innovative comedy about being young and finding your feet in a confusing world, when all you’ll ever be is ‘ordinary’. “Extraordinary” is a celebration of the anti-superhero, giving people permission to embrace their general okay-ness.

And “Finding Michael” has been nominated in the Best Documentary category, competing with “Children of the Taliban”, “Frozen Planet II”, “Jimmy Savile: A British Horror Story”, “The Crossing (Exposure)” – and “Wild Isles”. In the documentary, Spencer Matthews heads to Everest to try and find his brother Michael who disappeared without a trace 23 years ago.

The winners will be announced at the Awards Ceremony in August.

Both “Extraordinary” and “Finding Michael” are available to stream now on Disney+ in the UK and on Hulu in the United States.
