“The series explores fourteen mysterious deaths in the UK with alleged connections to Russia, including the poisoning of Alexander Litvinenko, the suspicious death of oligarch Boris Berezovsky and the attempted assassination of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal.
Filmmaker, designer, and CD Yoav Segal in London: “The six-part documentary series Once Upon a Time in Londongrad is both a cautionary tale and an origin story of Russia’s path to eventually invading Ukraine.
“Set across Vladimir Putin’s two decades in power, Once Upon a Time in Londongrad charts how the UK became reliant on Russian money and missed opportunities to contain the Kremlin.
“The series is directed by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Jed Rothstein (Killing In The Name, WeWork) for Rise Films in association with Universal International Studios, BuzzFeed Studios, and Concordia Studio for Sky Documentaries.
