Vitea Herbal Tea instead of rakija for Mile, Atlantis chocolate sweets for the inspector, a glass of Cevitana as refreshment in the hotel restaurant: this is just part of the scenery for the new Macedonian sitcom show ,,Prespav“.
As the doors of the board and lodging ,,Prespav“ open, you walk into a metaphorical story located on the shores of the Prespa Lake where Balkan mentality and the desire to establish and maintain European standards clash. The show tells the family story of brothers Buzalevski who open a board and lodging with the means obtained through a grant by the EU funding. The lives of the protagonists of this show, the generation gap between the brothers, the differences in mentality between the employees – are all intertwined with a great number of products from Vitaminka, since the realization of the Macedonian sitcom ,,Prespav“ was greatly helped by the company.
,,Each and every economic entity should make a contribution and help the development of contemporary Macedonian TV production in a way that is possible to them. In view of the fact that the company with its products has been a part of the everyday lives of Macedonian citizens for six decades and the help we provided for the creation of the show, it is only natural that we would be a part of an adaptation of Macedonian life of this sort“ said representatives from the company.
The first episode of the sitcom ,,Prespav“ aired on television network Telma on the 31st October, and the show will air every workday at 8.40 p.m. The show is under the direction of Igor Ivanov, along with Vardan Tozija, Eleonora Veninova and Darijan Peovski, and producer of the show is Pece Taleski. The casting is comprised of renowned Macedonian actors among which Vlado Jovanovski, Jelena Jovanova, Tijana Dapchevikj, Igor Angelov, Igor Stojchevski, Vasil Zafirchev, Goran Stojanovski and Adrian Aziri. Creators and writers of this Macedonian metaphor are Eleonora Veninova, Sasho Kokalanov, Venko Andonovski and Dimitar Banov.
