Besides, the global distributor of the series ZDF Enterprises (Germany) has scheduled a show case for the series.  

“We are excited to have HIDE AND SEEK officially premiere at NATPE Budapest. This is the first Ukrainian show to bow in there. CEE region is hugely important for us and I believe even the most discerning buyers will be surprised by the quality of our storytelling and production values.
