Brno, Sep 27, (BD) – The Serial Killer Festival, the most prestigious international TV and Web Series Festival in Central and Eastern Europe, ended on Saturday 25th.

The award for the best TV series this year went to the Serbian series Rodina (“The Family”). The series chronicles the three days before the detention of the former head of state, Slobodan Milošević.

The figure of the Serbian president is reconstructed by the testimony of family and friends, of the strong control he exercised over the Serbian people in the years of his presidency. The series also outlines the end of his family’s power and more generally the end of the Milošević era. 

Czech Television program director Milan Fridrich has confirmed that he will buy the series.

Klára Melíšková received an honorable mention and won a Harper’s Bazaar from the jury for her starring role in the new Czech Television miniseries Suspicion.

In the series, the actress plays the impenetrable and cold character of a nurse, accused of murdering a patient due to the insensitivity and coldness with which she treats her patients. 

The series is based on dozens of real cases and outlines the social cross-section that hides behind media, judicial and human events of this type: the media coverage it receives, the misunderstandings, the difficulty in reconstructing the events narrated.

The award for the best web series was won by the first original web series on Czech television – TBH, which follows the events after a shooting at a Brno high school and touches on issues such as adolescence and manipulation related to the use of social networks.
