Keshet acquires global rights for series The Paper


Global rights for one of the most anticipated Croatian series The Paper have been acquired by Keshet International. The international premiere was held on June 14th 2016 at New Europe Market (NEM), where the partnership deal was agreed.

The Paper is a dynamic 12 episode crime series where we follow the newsroom of a Rijeka daily paper amid an ownership change and internal turbulence caused by a serious car crash. The story revolves around Mario Kardum, an influential conservative tycoon who buys left-wing papers in a serious financial crisis, in order to establish his influence.

This dark cocktail of political corruption, crime and betrayal is directed by one of the most successful Croatian directors and a Cannes laureate Dalibor Matanić. The series, written by writer Ivica Đikić, deals with political centres of power, as well as journalism as a profession that became an instrument to achieve other goals.

It was easy to agree with Keshet on all levels. We are happy that the project is in good hands and feel like it “came home”. The way Keshet produce is what we have been trying to achieve for years in our own work, said Nebojša Taraba, creator and producer of the series.

Drugi plan production company, led by Nebojša Taraba and Miodrag Sila, is in charge of production for HRT.  Branka Katić, Trpimir Jukić, Aleksandar Cvjetković, Olga Pakalović, Zijad Gračić and others are among the main cast.
