The Best Men series is excellent, produced at a high level, and the content is interesting and dynamic with elements of great humor that our audience likes and recognizes,” said Balazs Szabo, Head of Acquisitions at RTL Hungary.
“Like No Matter What and At the Border, wonderfully adapted in Hungary by RTL, we believe that Best Men will also achieve great results and entertain the audience,” commented Tatjana Pavlović, Director of Sales of Original Content and Coproduction at United Media.
Best Men follows three families who clash in the remote area of Zaglave, and ultimately decide the fate of the place. On one side, there are the newly-rich and newly-arrived Macanis, on the other side are the powerful, established Akrapis, and in the middle are the criminal lords Gotovcis.
