The writers and producers were in New York for the awards, which are given to the best television shows produced outside of the United States.   

On the red carpet in New York, producer Michel Feller admitted that “the Netflix broadcast of the four seasons has allowed us, with a production that we could say is local, to be seen in more than 200 territories.”   

“Today there are almost 20 remakes that have either been signed, are in production or have been filmed,” in countries as diverse as Canada and India, he said.
