Russian TV-series The Outbreak produced by ТNТ PREMIER STUDIOS was included into the official competition of the CanneSeries International Festival in France, and will be premiered to a world-wide audience on the 9th of April.

The project has gotten some big names on board which are already familiar to the audience but yet have never worked together before.

Valeriy Fedorovich & Evgeny Nikishov (ТNТ PREMIER STUDIOS) are the only Russian producers whose series have been included into the official competition of the SeriesMania International Festival in France for two years in a row. Last year, it was An Ordinary Woman which received the prize for the best female role; this year, it's Identification starring European actress Lena Tronina.
During the world premiere in France, The Outbreak will be presented by its leading actresses Viktoriya Isakova and Maryana Spivak. It is not the first time they arrive to Cannes with a Feature content. Three years ago, Viktoriya Isakova presented Kirill Serebrennikov's drama The Student, which was awarded François Chalais prize of the Cannes Festival; while, in 2017, Maryana Spivak graced the red carpet after her work in Andrey Zvyagintsev's film Loveless, which was later awarded the special prize of the jury of the official competition.

The Outbreak director, Pavel Kostomarov, is an awardee of the Berlin International Cinema Festival for best cinematography in the film How I Ended This Summer.

The series is based on bestselling book Vongozero (To the Lake), which was translated into 11 languages. Yana Vagner, the author of the bestseller, is the finalist of many international literary awards, including Prix Bob Morane, and an awardee of Elle Style Awards (Grand Prix des lectrices de Elle). The fact that the book the series is based on became such a success in these strange times – is quite an incredible story itself. Yana wasn't a writer by any mean, yet she started to publish separate fragments of her future story on the internet and, very soon, she was surrounded by a newly born army of fans. At some point, publishers could no longer ignore millions of readers who were simply addicted to Yana's story, so they decided to buy the rights to publish the whole thing as a book. As in case of Fifty Shades of Grey (another big literary phenomenon born on the internet), it didn't take long before the story made it to the screen.

A harsh family drama that takes place in the midst of a global catastrophe, The Outbreak tells a story of an unknown virus which is gradually turns Moscow into a city of the dead: there is no electricity, money has lost all value, and those who are not yet infected are desperately fighting for food and fuel. The main character, Sergei, lives outside the city with the woman he loves and her autistic son. He has to get back to Moscow to save his ex-wife and their son, although she hates Sergei. People who would never stay under the same roof in any other circumstances must now join forces to try to escape the growing epidemic.

The Outbreak was shot in some of the most fascinating locations, including Archangelsk Oblast, the Northern region very far from Moscow. The show is produced by ТNТ PREMIER STUDIOS who brought us many massive titles including the hit series An Ordinary Woman, Identification, Karamora, Dyatlov's Pass, Toni-Droid, sci-fi movie The Blackout, and more than 20 other projects.
