Countries are scrambling to obtain the rights to broadcast the comedy series “Servant of the People”, starring Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky before he became president.
In 2015, comedian Vladimir Zelensky played Vasily Petrovich Goloborodko, a high school teacher who moved to the presidency after one of his students posted a video clip denouncing official corruption in Ukraine.
Goloborodko begins to run country affairs, avoiding the advantages of being a leader by living his ordinary life.
The series was a huge success in Ukraine, where it ran for three seasons.
English Channel 4 has announced that it has the rights to broadcast the series in the UK and plans to air an episode on Sunday.
Broadcasting rights holder Eco Rights also reported agreements with TV stations in the Middle East, Greece and Romania, as well as radio stations in Bulgaria, Moldova, Estonia, France, Finland and Georgia.
EcoRights donated 50,000 euros to the Ukrainian Red Cross, and the company has removed Russian or Russian-made TV shows from its programmes.
The series won the Best Feature Film Award at the Tele Triumph Awards in Ukraine and also the Gold Remy Award for Television Comedy at the WorldFest in Houston in 2016.
