The criminal drama is the first series from the Balkans to be included in the official selection of the prestigious festival.
“We have high aspirations for the continued international success of shows produced by United Media. To develop more compelling content, we will continue to produce and seek out the top talent in our region,” Pavlović said.
“It’s exciting to be part of a group with such vision and reach and to be able to share that vision with the rest of the world,” she added.
To date United Media has filmed more than 30 original projects – from much-talked-about historical dramas such as “Alexander of Yugoslavia” and “Time of Evil” to comedies, crime series, and soaps.
