Tashkent, Uzbekistan (UzDaily.com) -- Social network Odnoklassniki is the first in Russia among social networks to present its own original series - "Five with plus". The main roles will be played by Lukerya Ilyashenko, Artem Tsukanov, Yulia Frants, Dmitry Endaltsev and Artem Eshkin.
The production of the comedy series was a new step for OK in working with its own professional content after the success of several shows on the social network platform, including the evening show with the stars "OK in touch!" The premiere of the series is timed to coincide with the 15th anniversary of Odnoklassniki and will take place on 25 March 2021. In total, viewers will see 10 episodes, which will be aired once a week.
The first shots from the series can already be seen in the trailer, which today appeared in the official group of the Five Plus project. The group will become the center of information about the series: it will publish photographs from the set, exclusive photo and video materials, interviews with the director, actors and the project team.
The series tells about the main thing in social networks - the relationship between people. A young couple - Olya (Lukerya Ilyashenko) and Stas (Artem Tsukanov) - decides to earn money for a wedding and rent out two of the three rooms of a Moscow apartment donated by their parents. Viewers will see how characters will learn to take responsibility for their decisions and actions throughout the season and make new true friends.
The genre and plot of the series were selected based on an analysis of the preferences of viewers of their own social network shows and content that is published in OK by other copyright holders. In Odnoklassniki, entertainment content is the most popular, so the creators opted for the comedy series format.
The director was Dina Shturmanova, known for her work in successful Russian projects - "Interns", "Univer", "Civil marriage". The main roles in the series were played by young Russian actors: Artem Tsukanov (Olga, Former-2), Lukerya Ilyashenko (Outpost, Sweet Life), Dmitry Endaltsev (Doctor Richter, Psychology, Survive after ”), Julia Frants (“ Kitchen ”,“ Gogol. Beginning ”,“ Gogol Viy ”,“ The Roof of the World ”) and Artem Eshkin (OKO Agency). The series was produced by the AVK production company (“Without witnesses”, “This is me!”, “Red bracelets”).
Using the technologies of the video platform and its own creative studio, Odnoklassniki will provide all viewers with an interactive viewing of the series: users will be able to discuss characters and episodes in an online chat, will have the opportunity to take part in polls and quizzes about the further development of the plot.
“For more than five years we have been developing the viewing of long videos on OK and on other Mail.ru Group resources, we see an increase in the audience and its involvement in such content. Shows of their own production receive millions of views in OK every week, users actively participate in discussions, share the best episodes with friends and suggest their heroes for the show. Therefore, for the 15th anniversary of OK, we decided to go further and present a new large-scale project - our own series. We are very familiar with the intricacies of human relationships, so we decided to consider this topic in the popular genre of the comedy series. We hope that the series will be well received by the audience, not only in OK, but also outside the social network,” says Marina Krasnova, director of the video platform, Mail.ru Group.
