MPI filmmaker, Elvira Ibragimova, has been nominated for AMC Networks’ Best Female Creator Award at Starable Fest LA 2023 for her writing and directing of the MPI Original Series We’re Doing Good. The nomination was made recognizing the creativity, vision, and hard work that went into creating this project. 

The comedy series stars Emily Pendergast (Veep) and Jonathan Braylock (Netflix’s Astronomy Club) as a young couple who set out to make the world a better place, whether the world wants it or not.

It premiered at South by Southwest, won Best Web Series at the Broad Humor Film Festival, and won the Caz Matthews Fund award at SeriesFest in Denver where Emily Pendergast also won Best Performance for her portrayal of Nora in the “Go Vegan!” episode of We’re Doing Good.
