Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, now Pope Francis, and Rabbi Abraham Skorka, along with a Protestant minister, the Rev. Marcelo Figueroa, appeared on “Bible, A Valid Dialogue.”
Pope Francis aired a prerecorded message to his production team: “You worked so hard to deserve this prize, God bless you.”
The Israeli television series “B’Tipul,” or “In Treatment,” won in the miniseries category — the first time an Israeli show won a Fierro Award. The show about the life of an Israeli psychologist was created by an Israeli, Hagai Levy, and produced in Buenos Aires by an Argentine Israeli, Yair Dori. — jta
