Shooting of the series “Pushkin's Tales. For Adults” has begun in Moscow. The six-part anthology is based on five children's works of the classic of Russian literature in a non-childish and modern reading. The main roles in one of the series will be played by Ingeborga Dapkunaite, Daria Zhovner, Lolita Milyavskaya and others.

In each of the fairy tales, the action is transferred to modern reality: the princess here became an instablogger, Elisha became a rapper, and the Golden Cockerel became a neural network. The creators declare that the atmosphere of the series will resemble both the sensational British science fiction series “Black Mirror” and the Russian realistic dilogy of Alexei Balabanov “Brother”.

Each of the five fairy tales will have its own director, which, according to the creators, will show Pushkin's work in different readings.

It is very difficult to preserve the spirit of Pushkin without relying on his texts, but we will try. Moreover, five different directors are working on the series, which means that we will have five different Pushkins,

– said Mikhail Zygar, showrunner of the project.

It is already known that Ingeborga Dapkunaite, Daria Zhovner, Denis Shvedov, Pavel Popov, Lolita Milyavskaya and others will play the main roles in one of the episodes called “Rybka” by director Ksenia Zueva (twice a participant in “Kinotavr”). Irina Bezrukova also took part in the filming. This episode will be reminiscent of the romantic comedy of the 2010s.

Pushkin is the national pride of our country, a huge part of its unique culture. And 150 years later, his stories remain all the same vivid and recognizable. We are confident that the creative team of the project under the leadership of Mikhail Zygar will not only breathe new life into the characters familiar to each of us from childhood, but also preserve the unique images of the great writer and poet,

– said the producer of the project and the general director of STS Media Vyacheslav Murugov.

The series will premiere this fall on the online platform more.tv.
