On February 27, the closed premiere of the comedy series "Patriot" took place at the Illusion cinema in the capital, which starts on TNT on March 10.

Gavriil Gordeev, creative director of TNT: “Today we present you, without exaggeration, an all-Russian TV series! It's a dashing, honest and very patriotic comedy."
Producer Anton Zaitsev: “We have been doing the series“Patriot”for a very long time. And it is very important for us to prove that quality can give a good result. We think that "Patriot" is a new reactive comedy, which has not been on Russian television for a long time. This is a cool story about cool people!"
Performer of the main role Anton Zhizhin: “We had a very cool team, and the atmosphere was really family! I think comedy and patriotism go well together. Because if you treat everything with serious cabbage soup, life will be very difficult. No humor anywhere! But "Patriot" is a series primarily about love. To the homeland, to your yard, to friends, to everyone. My hero Sanya comes from the army, and since he loves everything around him, he wants to make the world a better place."
Creative producer, screenwriter and actor Alexei Bazanov: “Patriot” is a series about love and striving for a dream. Tune your receptors for comedy!"
Director Nikolai Burlak: “Our series turned out to be funny and touching. This is the perfect synthesis for me."
Actress Anastasia Talyzina: “Patriot” is a series about love for the motherland and love between people. About the idealism of the protagonist. It's great that we are talking about love for the homeland! It was very interesting for me to act in a comedy series. My heroine Lenka is from a different test, she is completely different, and this experience liberated me as an actress, gave me a lot of new things."
Actress Alena Savastova: “For me this is a series about people, and I like that we are talking about our attitude to our country, to the place where we live. And, of course, Patriot is a comedy about human relationships, love and friendship."
Especially for the premiere of Patriot, TNT, together with the production of the Good Story Media series (Real Boys, Fizruk, Olga), published a book with poems dedicated to the heroes of this story - ordinary people whom you definitely met in your life.
