Parrot Analytics revealed the finalists of its 4th Annual Global TV Demand Awards, where the Spanish drama is competing in three categories, including Most Demanded Series. Meanwhile, Mexico shines in the Latin American exports category with four of the five finalists.

Parrot Analytics, the global audience demand analytics firm, today announced the new format and finalists for the 4th annual Global TV Demand Awards, and accompanying Virtual Festival hosted over three days beginning February 1, 2022 through February 3, 2022.

The winning TV shows will be revealed on January 25, 2022.

The second annual Virtual Festival will center around a theme of “Revolutionaries.” Talent, creators, and executives behind the world’s most in-demand content will join Parrot Analytics in conversation about pivotal career-defining decisions that helped create the content and strategies that have revolutionized the entertainment industry.

There are several changes to the Award program this year, including new TV categories, a category rewarding the most in-demand actor in a superhero TV series, and an award for the most exceptional streaming platform. Most significantly, only TV shows that aired new episodes in 2021 are eligible for all but one category this year.

“As entertainment evolves, so do we. We’re thrilled to announce the new eligibility and category changes that will elevate new stories and their fandoms for the Global TV Demand Awards in its fourth year. Our goal has always been to recognize the world’s most in-demand TV content and this year will be no different as we celebrate the exceptional entertainment of 2021,” said Rebekah Zabarsky, Executive Producer of the awards and Marketing Director at Parrot Analytics.

“With the second annual Virtual Festival, we’re casting a spotlight on the revolutionary individuals who are reshaping the entertainment industry in real time. We hope you’ll join us for three days of on-demand insights and inspiration that will jump start your 2022 with a bang.”

The current finalists for each category are determined based on global TV demand data for the period January 1, 2021 – November 5, 2021. The winner’s announcement will incorporate data from the full calendar year of 2021.

A preview of the Global TV Demand Awards: Virtual Festival will occur on Tuesday November 30th in a Parrot Analytics LIVE webinar titled “The New Class: Television That Revolutionized Entertainment in 2021.” Parrot Analytics’ senior strategy analyst Julia Alexander and Observer’s senior entertainment reporter Brandon Katz will go live as they provide an engaging and entertaining take on the 2021 Awards finalists.
