Epic miniseries Dubrovnik: The Republic to air this May

By  Mark Thomas Apr 13, 2017

Viasat World has acquired a documentary series recounting the history of the Croatian city of Dubrovnik, which originally aired on Croatian national television (HRT), and plans to air it in 40 countries. This six-part miniseries will start on the 3rd of May.

Republika: The History of Dubrovnik looks at the history and cultural significance of the world heritage site and will now air on the Viasat History channel.

The series was written and directed by Božidar Domagoj Burić, who also composed the music. Branko Cahun was the director of photography, Dubravko Prugovečki the editor and Marija Kosor the producer.

Viasat said the programme fitted with the sort of well-researched content that challenges viewers with a modern look at history using charismatic stories. It follows the successful airing of another Croatian doc, Croatian Kings, on the same channel.

Viasat World operates pay TV stations in 47 territories reaching Scandinavia, CEE, Russia, Turkey, Africa, Israel and the US.

Karin Heijink, VP of channels and product, said: “After the success of Croatian Kings on Viasat History we are very pleased to have secured Republika: The History of Dubrovnik, a fascinating series that will have our audiences hooked.

“Our viewers love watching European history and this series, with its unique historical breadth, high-quality production values and strong re-enactments, will showcase the significant history of The Republic of Dubrovnik that will appeal to our viewers across Europe and Russia.”
