GoQuest sold Serbian drama Civil Servant to GloboplayGoQuest Media (India) announced a new strategic deal in Latin America: it has sold the Serbian spy thriller Civil Servant (S1: 12x'50 and S2: 12 '50) to the Brazilian streaming platform Globoplay. Distributor is offering this series at Virtual Screenings Worldwide on September 21-30.
Produced by Telekom Srbija and Film Danas, Civil Servant was created and produced by Predrag Antonijevic and directed by Miroslav Lekic and Ivan Zivkovic. It is a gripping thriller series that follows a young, ambitious Serbian Secret Service (BIA) agent, Lazar Stanojević (played by Milan Marić, who recently received the Shooting Stars Award at Berlinale and the Chopard Talent Award at the Moscow Film Festival) as he negotiates the rules of the international spy game in the modern world.
Season 3 has recently commenced filming and will air on one of Serbia’s top-watched TV channels, Superstar TV, in the Spring of 2022. 'The Serbian Secret Service thriller is part of an important strategy to bring to our audiences a great portfolio of global series, with content from different countries, but with interesting and universal themes', remarked Antonio Augusto Valente, Globoplay’s Content Strategy Manager.
Jimmy George, VP, Sales & Acquisitions at GoQuest Media, completed: 'What a brilliant debut for Civil Servant in Latin America, and we’re so glad that this captivating series has found its home with Globoplay. We hope Brazilian audiences root for the protagonist Lazar as they discover great and unique locations, engage with the characters and enjoy the novelty of learning the workings of an intelligence network that is quite unfamiliar'.
