Polish TV serial The Pleasure Principle (Zasada Przyjemności) has received the Platinum REMI Award in the mini-series category during the WorldFest International Film Festival in Houston, the Office of Polish Film Awards announced on Monday.

A press release stated that the award at the WorldFest festival in Houston is "a further international award success of the first TV series co-production in history of the countries of Eastern Europe."

"The serial, bought by Franco-German station ARTE and presented on the international market by world distribution potentate Beta Film, will soon also appear on Italian RAI television," the release continued.

The serial, directed by Dariusz Jabłoński, premiered last June on the Canal+ channel. Jabłoński told PAP at the time that The Pleasure Principle is a "mosaic story in which apart from psychology and beauty we find very strong action scenes, unseen to date in Polish, Czech or Ukrainian cinema."
