Well ... The New Zealand TV2 series "Shortland Street" has been around for a couple of hundred years. Oh, wait, no - it just feels like that. I remember years back when it first started, I thought the acting was so amateur-ish. Nowadays the show has reached iconic status.
Anyway, the Ukraine has bought the bones of the series. I think this means the basic plots, sets, characters. There will be Ukranian actors in the show.
It is so interesting to know that a kiwi plotline was considered good enough for tv in another country.
Of course the Ukraine will put their own stamp on the series, and good for them. I expect that, if the series lasts, the storylines will veer a long way away from our series.
Thank you, Ukraine. Hope you enjoy the series.
PS: Hey, Ukraine, I was in the supermarket and noticed fruit biscuits from your country on the shelf. An open market for fruit biscuits in exchange for a tv series - Yummy! A great swap!
