"Traitor" (6x58’) is produced by multi-service provider Elisa Estonia and Estonian public broadcaster ERR, inspired by recent spy scandals in Estonia. The thriller begins in 2004 just before Estonia joined NATO and became a top target for Russian intelligence. Greed and the need for recognition leads recruit Alfred Vint (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) as they navigate the challenges faced in their personal lives.
"Civil Servant" (S01: 12 x 50’ & S02: 12 x 50’) is a spy thriller produced by Telekom Srbija and Film Danas 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. The third season of "Civil Servant" will air in Spring 2022 on Serbia’s most-watched TV channel Superstar TV.
