Germany’s Beta Film - one of the world leaders on the license market - will handle the international distribution of the Russian series Polyot (The Flight). The series was made by 1-2-3 Production with Valery Fyodorovich and Evgeny Nikishov acting as its producers.
Beta Film acquired the rights to another high-profile project by Valery Fyodorovich and Evgeny Nikishov earlier this year - the series Pereval Dyatlova (Dead Mountain - The Dyatlov Pass Incident), which launched with great success on TNT channel and PREMIER video platform this week.
Polyot is a drama series by Pyotr Todorovsky Jr. with Nikita Efremov, Oksana Akinshina, Pavel Tabakov and Yulia Khlynina playing the lead roles. The story centers on a group of construction company employees who narrowly escape death and consequently decide to radically change their lives and challenge everything that prevents them from feeling alive.
The series has already attracted the attention of an international audience. In September it won the main prize at The Best TV Series festival Serial Killer in Czech Republic, and in November it became the only Russian project to be included in the program of another authoritative series event - Seriencamp in Germany. Furthermore, the project was included in the program of Content London, a prestigious international online conference in the United Kingdom, and will get an exclusive screening there at the end of the month.
