Servant of the People Sold into Korea, Optioned for Remake in France


Eccho Rights has sold the hit Ukrainian comedy Servant of the People into Korea, while the scripts have been optioned for a remake in France.

In Korea, the series will air on HQ Plus as the first-ever foreign content for the channel. In France, Elephant Story has taken an option on the scripts.

Producer Kvartal 95 and international distributor Eccho Rights can now also confirm that the scripts have been picked up by Star Channel in Greece, which will create their own version of the political comedy.

Nicola Söderlund, the managing partner at Eccho Rights, said: “Servant of the People is a hilarious series but also a very relevant story for people all over the world. As political shifts are increasingly dictated by what people see on the internet, so the story becomes more and more relatable, and close to the reality that many of us are now living in!”
