A young actor Lyokha starts working on a play together with a group of people with whom he easily finds a common language. Lyokha is driven by his personal reasons and he wants to find answers to questions in his relationship with his wife. That's why he finds himself in an unexpected place: in the performing arts studio of a foundation that supports people with disabilities. Close communication with them shows Lyokha that every cloud has a silver lining, one can find humor where, it would seem, it is not possible, and love... being the most powerful feeling can reveal a person from an unexpected side. Thus the main thing for Lyokha is to help his loved ones to see their life from a new perspective. Anna Nagler, Director, Local Language Originals, CEE and Russia: "Nothing Special is a beautiful story, so simple and yet so complex. It is told with incredible sensitivity and with an even greater sense of humor. This is a touching narrative relating how deep connections can appear if we allow ourselves the chance to get to know each other. We were charmed from the very start and trust the story will equally appeal to our Russian members". Ilya Malanin, director: "I am very pleased that it is this story that established my directorial debut. It is full of emotion, acceptance, and love. Each character is knitted with contradictions both in thoughts and actions. And there is nothing special about it" . Valeriy Fedorovich and Evgeniy Nikishov, producers: "We are glad that once again Netflix enables us to share a Russian story with the whole world. Together with highly professional actors such as Yura Borisov and Daria Melnikova, newer talents - some of whom have disabilities - made this project really special. Their talent and charisma help us share a heartwarming, sympathetic story. It leaves nobody indifferent".
A genre-bending, anti-historical ride through 18th-century Russia following the wildly comedic rise of Catherine the Nothing to Catherine the Great. A royal woman living in rural Russia during the 18th century is forced to choose between her own personal happiness and the future of Russia, when she marries an Emperor. The Great is a satirical, comedic drama about the rise of Catherine the Great from outsider to the longest-reigning female ruler in Russia's history. The series is fictionalized and portrays Catherine in her youth and marriage with Emperor Peter III (amalgamated with Peter II) focusing on the plot to kill her depraved and dangerous husband. In season two of "The Great," Catherine finally takes the Russian throne for her own - but if she thought coup-ing her husband was difficult, it's nothing compared to the realities of liberating a country that doesn't want to be. She'll battle her court, her team, even her own mother (played by guest star Gillian Anderson) in a bid to bring the Enlightenment to Russia. Meanwhile, she'll also battle her heart as Peter slowly transitions from a much-hated husband to a prisoner? Ally? Lover? Ultimately, Catherine will learn that to change a country, you must let it change you, that there is a fine line between idealism and delusion, and that becoming "Great" will ask more of her than she could have imagined. The series stars Elle Fanning as Catherine, Nicholas Hoult, Phoebe Fox, Adam Godley, Gwilym Lee, Charity Wakefield, Douglas Hodge, Sacha Dhawan, Bayo Gbadamosi and Belinda Bromilow. "The Great" is created, written and executive produced by Tony McNamara and executive produced by Marian Macgowan, Mark Winemaker, Elle Fanning, Nicholas Hoult, Echo Lake's Brittany Kahan Ward, Doug Mankoff and Andrew Spaulding, Thruline's Josh Kesselman and Ron West, and Matt Shakman. The project is produced by Civic Center Media in association with MRC Television.
