Black Adder of Balkans

When Black Adder first appeared on former Yugoslav television(s) in late 1980s, many wondered whether anyone in this part of the world would dare to give similar treatment to local historical icons.

More than a decade and few wars later, Serbian BK television decided to make this bold step with Crni Gruja, sitcom set in Serbia 1803, a year before famous rebellion against Ottomans. The protagonist, corrupt local chieftain Crni Gruja (whose name is similar to Crna Guja, Serbo-Croatian translation of Black Adder) is going to be played by Sergej Trifunović (Sergej Trifunovic), one of the most talented Serbian actors of younger generation.
