An upcoming HBO series got good news at Monday night’s International Emmys in New York. According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Utopia,” the critically acclaimed British crime thriller that revolves around the manuscript of a cult graphic novel, won for best drama.

While Channel 4 did not renew the show after its second season, “Gone Girl” director and writer David Fincher and Gillian Flynn are adapting it for HBO.

The top comedy prize of the night went to Belgium’s “What If?” Top acting prizes went to British actor (and “Game of Thrones” star) Stephen Dillane, for his work in the French-British crime drama “The Tunnel,” and Dutch actress Bianca Krijgsman, who plays a cleaner in the drama “The New World,” which is set in an airport immigration center.
