“While working on Epidemic, we, frankly, did not set ourselves the task of blowing up the international market, although we hoped so. It was important for us to show the relationship between people who are on the verge of life and death and want to survive at all costs. Will they manage not to lose their human face? How far are they willing to go to save themselves and their loved ones? These are the universal questions that are driving our story forward. And if they turned out to be understandable and close to the foreign viewer, it means that we really managed to find something very important and relevant - something that these days worries millions of viewers around the world, ”said Valery Fedorovich. We add that the main role in the series "Epidemic" was played by actor Kirill Kyaro, familiar to the audience for his roles in the films "The Sniffer", "Treason", "Reckoning", "Passengers".
