Rest in Peace to air on UK television

Britain’s Global Series Network has purchased licensing for Rest in Peace, a Croatian television drama series whose development was financed by the Croatian Audiovisual Centre. This is the first time that a Croatian series will be broadcast on television in Great Britain, a large and very significant market. Global Series Network is the exclusive partner of the well-known British public television network Channel Four. 

The series was developed within the framework of the Croatian Audiovisual Centre’s application for television project development. The show was broadcast on Croatian Radio Television, and in Belgium at the end of last year as well. Production was funded by Croatian Radio Television (HRT), while production was carried out by the independent firm Ring Productions. The directors are Goran Rukavina, Kristijan Milić and Goran Dukić, and, to date, more than 250 top Croatian actors have appeared on the show led by lead characters played by Judita Franković and Dragan Despot.

The project Walter Presents was initiated in order to introduce the best dramas from around the globe and we are proud to have bought the rights to broadcast the television drama series Rest in Peace, our first Croatian series. I hope that this is the first of many successful transactions for Croatian productions on the global market,’ said Walter Iuzzolino, television producer and co-creator of Walter Presents.

Signing the deal, 2017 will see Rest in Peace as the first Croatian television series to be broadcast to British television viewers.
