Croatia might be associated with movie-making sets, being the filming locality of Game of Thrones, Star Wars, Robin Hood and quite probably the upcoming James Bond. However, the country also tenders its own production which gains momentum on international scene. One of the most recent TV-series is called ‘The Paper’ and in addition to being well received by local audiences, it also became available on Netflix. This achievement is quite remarkable, since this is the first time that influential streaming service purchased a series on Slavic language.
‘The Paper’ follows the tale of imaginary Croatian news magazine. The company which owns it is passing through a sensitive shift in ownership. But when an influential public person connects with hiding the consequences of a tragic accident, the journalists are challenged to weight their risks and enter the world of intrigue. Full of suspense and complex characters, ‘The Paper’ was authored by Drugi Plan Production Company. The series has been filmed largely in the coastal City of Rijeka.
“We are pleased to announce that Netflix already bought the second season of the series, which is in production at the moment,” said Nebojsa Taraba of Drugi Plan. “We managed to enter this huge market before countries such as Russia, Poland and Czech Republic. Netflix standards are exceptionally high, and we are among seven countries that satisfied these, not counting United States. ”
