GoQuest Media has licensed a drama package deal to Disney+ Hotstar, one of the largest online video streaming platforms in India. This association sees Disney+ Hotstar acquiring the Indian rights to three thrilling European dramas, "Civil Servant" and "Debt to the Sea" produced by Serbian telecommunications and cable TV operator Telekom Srbija and "Traitor" produced by multi-service provider Elisa Estonia and Estonian public broadcaster ERR.
Vivek Lath, Managing Director of GoQuest Media added, "Spy dramas have enjoyed consistent success with Indian audiences on streaming platforms. Both 'Civil Servant' and 'Traitor' have the story, casting, and production brilliance to build a new fanbase in the country. 'Debt to the Sea' is perfect for those who enjoy psychological thrillers with myths, murders, and family secrets set against a stunning seaside location like Montenegro. We are very excited that these exceptional Eastern European titles are now premiering in India and hope that Disney+ Hotstar audiences will enjoy them as much as we did"
Produced in conjunction with Film Danas and directed by Miroslav Lekic and Ivan Zivkovic, "Civil Servant" is a gripping spy thriller series that follows a young, ambitious Serbian Secret Service (BIA) agent, Lazar Stanojević (played by Milan Marić) as he negotiates the rules of the international spy game in the modern world.
Dark secrets, ancient myths and an unrelenting sea determine the life of the characters in "Debt to the Sea" produced in association with Monte Royal Pictures International and directed by Goran Gajic. The arrival of a mysterious stranger triggers an unstoppable wave of events for the unnerved inhabitants of a beautiful but deadly Montenegro coastal village.
Disney+ Hotstar has also acquired the spy thriller "Traitor" directed by Ergo Kuld. Inspired by recent spy scandals in Estonia, "Traitor" is a captivating thriller which begins in 2004, just before Estonia joined NATO and became a top target for Russian intelligence. Greed and the need for recognition leads new recruit Alfred Vint (played by Tambet Tuisk) to cooperate with Russian intelligence, leading to a thrilling cat-and-mouse game with determined young Estonian counter-intelligence officer Marko Arrak (Veiko Porkanen).
