“We are incredibly proud that the quality of our production has been recognized worldwide. This demonstrates that the attraction of captivating stories transcends national boundaries.

That is why we are certain that the two new titles in the UM catalogue will surpass the accomplishments of previous releases,” said Tatjana Pavlović,  Director of original content sales and co-production.

She added that United Media continually strives to create a myriad of high-quality projects, both independently and in collaboration with esteemed international productions.

The series “Demon’s Fall” hails from Bulgaria and serves as a spin-off of the popular series “The Devil’s Throat.” Even before its television premiere, it was declared the best series at the oldest Bulgarian film festival, “Golden Rose.” Over 12 thrilling episodes, viewers will be drawn into the story of ritualistic murders, unraveling through a complex investigation led by two detectives. Teodora Dukhovnikova stars as Mia Yazova, recently ousted from the State Agency for National Security, who stumbles upon an anonymous tip about a gruesome ritual murder, launching a complex investigation. Collaborating with former colleague Philip Chanov (Vladimir Karamazov), they uncover a multi-layered fraud in the enchanting city of Veliko Tarnovo. The killer meticulously selects historical sites, using ancient execution methods, drawing connections to Christian monsters, and leaving notes in old languages. As the body count rises, a web of truth, lies, mysticism, vengeance, and treachery unfolds, turning the investigation into a blood-soaked historical mystery.

Contemporary crime-solving series “The Skarab” (The Beetle) is coming from Greece. The series’ main storyline follows an elite team from the Homicide Division/Crimes Against Life Department (of GADA), led by their fearless captain, Marcos Alexiou. Known by the nickname “The Skarab” since the police officers’ academy, Marco is celebrated for his job success, determination, agility, and his knack for deciphering the unspoken motives of his adversaries.

We are excited to share these intriguing new stories with audiences across the world.
