Producers predict HBO’s departure from Russia and the transition of streaming to Asian series

Written by admin

Leading Russian producers from studios and online cinemas spoke anonymously The Village on the consequences of sanctions due to Russia’s special operation in Ukraine for the film and TV series industry.

The number of TV projects is declining, their budgets are expected to fall by 30-50%, quality TV series will be lost due to the fall of the advertising market, and the planning horizon on television has been reduced to three months.

Although there are no official statements from Amediateka yet, the producers expect the HBO online cinema to leave the Russian market. Most of the new foreign prime ministers are frozen, but the rights to them have not yet been revoked by Russian streaming platforms.

Representatives of the film industry suggest that the focus may be on the Asian TV series or domestic production. All risky projects will be canceled, but large-scale control and censorship is not expected.
