The International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences today unveiled the winners of the International Emmy Awards 2020.
The series was directed by Pavel Soukup, written by screenwriters Jaroslav T. Miška and Jan Stehlík and produced Vratislav Šlajer, Jakub Košťál and Milan Kuchynka. The protagonist Marty was played by Jakub Nemčok.
The eight-part online series, available on Mall.tv was inspired by real cases of cyberbullying and created in collaboration with the Safely on the Net project.
The sequel, called #annaismissing, will be available on Mall.TV from May 2021.
#annaismissing will revolve around the investigation into the kidnapping of a child, 14-year-old Anna, for black-market videos. The project is currently in development, and the producers are working closely with the police and experts in internet safety, to not only create a suspenseful format, but also to illustrate the carefully planned system of social engineering and the vulnerability of the victims of online predators.
“We didn’t expect anything, our chance was 25 percent in the final competition,” says Šlajer. “After all, the nomination itself in this worldwide gathering of thousands of series has been a huge success for us, especially in the competition of global players such as Netflix and HBO.”
