The new division has started with production of entertainment shows and feature films. Most of them will be available exclusively at MEGOGO, while some will be distributed in Russian film theatres and sold to other video services.

Work has also begun on original television shows. One of them will premiere at MEGOGO in 2019. The company plans to produce 300 hours of content in its first year of operation. The production will increase to 1000 hours by 2022.

The company currently has seven feature films in production encompassing family comedies, thriller, biopic and melodramas. The releases are scheduled for 2019-2021. The projects feature actors such as Filipp Yankovsky, Andrey Burkovskiy, Semyon Treskunov, Pavel Chinaryov, Danila Yakushev, Rina Grishina, Dmitriy Vlaskin and magicians Safronov brothers. At the helm of the business is general producer Georgiy Malkov who has produced more than 40 films.

Commenting on the launch, MEGOGO Russia CEO said Viktor Chekanov: “Own studio and co-production are the two main paths of OTT services that create proprietary content. We chose the first path as the major one. By taking part in production from the idea stage to the final version, we are able to influence quality of the product. We already have negotiations regarding brand placements. Of course, own production studio lead by such a strong general producer as Georgiy Malkov will give contribute to dynamic development of the company as well as the OTT industry in Russia.”
