Global independent content distributor GoQuest Media has concluded a deal with Globoplay which will see the Serbian spy thriller Civil Servant
stream on Globo’s Brazilian OTT platform.
Created and produced by Predrag Antonijevic (Savior, Dara of Jasenovac) and directed by Miroslav Lekic and Ivan Zivkovic, Civil Servant 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. He quickly learns that all is not what it seems, and he is left fighting the distrust that he has for everything he thought to be true. Despite this, his sense of duty still makes him make dangerous decisions to try to protect his nation, his family and himself. Will Lazar emerge from being a servant of the state to its ultimate protector?
Telekom Serbia, in co-operation with Film Danas has recently commenced filming of the third season. The highly anticipated crime series will air on one of Serbia’s most-watched TV channels, Superstar TV, in the Spring of 2022.
Commenting on the deal, Antonio Augusto Valente, Globoplay’s Content Strategy Manager said: “The Serbian Secret Service thriller Civil Servant 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.”
Jimmy George, Vice President, Sales & Acquisitions at GoQuest Media, added: “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.”
