‘Kvartal 95’ studio has run new project, TV film ‘The Servant of Nation’. 40 sitcom episodes tell about ordinary history teacher, who became a President by fate and the public will.
During a quarter of a century different people have been chosen as a Head of our country. They've promised our life to get better immediately – finally they got nothing but plenty of reasons for rumors. But what if a commoner became a President of Ukraine? New honest, principled and – thing – intelligent man. Would we finally live anew?
These thoughts once upon a time inspired Ukrainians to President-elect history teacher Vasiliy Goloborod'ko…
Suddenly the country gets guarantor who lives in an ordinary flat, walks without security escort and whose salary may seem hilarious. In short, he lives like everyone else.
Sitcom screenplay is worked out by ‘Kvartal 95’ creative team, ‘Kinokvartal’, which used to write scenarios for successful fool movies (‘Svaty’, ‘8 New Dates’ etc.). The director is Alexey Kir'ushchenko, who is also familiar with other ‘Kvartal’ films.
The main role is starred by Vladimir Zelensky. His character is forced to combat the system where people are used to cheating and godless thievery. His parents are acted by Natalia Sumskaya and Viktor Saraykin. Ekaterina Kisten' is the protagonist's sister, and Anna Koshmal, who is already famous by ‘Svaty’, is inimitable in an image of his niece.
Here is one more interesting fact. All the government posts are took up by ‘Kvartal 95’ guys. Ministry of Foreign Affairs is led by Evgeniy Koshevoy, Ministry of Defense is Alexander Pikalov's business, Yuriy Krapov is a head of Tax Administration. Charming Elena Kravets acts a leader of National Bank of Ukraine.
Shooting will last till autumn. ‘The Servant of Nation’ will appear on the air in spring 2016 on ‘1+1’ channel.
