Russian Mafia coming to Zagreb via the BBC

Written by  Oct 28, 2016

Within the next month gangsters and mobsters will take over the main capital of Croatia but only on the big screen! Croatia has once again attracted the international film industry, but this time it will feature the city of Zagreb and not Dubrovnik.

From the 5th of November to the 2nd of December a BBC film crew will shoot the new series ''McMafia'', a TV drama about the Russian mafia in London starring James Norton.

The shooting will take place at some of the most popular locations in Zagreb such as the Palaca Dverce (as the HQ of the Russian mafia), the Mirogoj cemetery (as the big cemetery in Moscow), the St. Marko church in the Upper Town, Kamenita Vrata, the Strossmayer Square and in a number of streets in the city's centre.

The eight-part BBC drama is based on the bestseller of the Guardian's reputable journalist Misha Glenny about organized crime, whilst the main character, the British actor James Norton is best known for his roles in the British TV series ''Happy Valley'', ''Grantchester'' and ''War & Peace''.
