RUSSKOE Film Company was established in 2007 as a small independent production studio. Over the 10 years, the company has become one of the most prominent producers on the Russian TV market.

Every year the studio produces more than 250 hours of TV series and films, which enjoy sustained success with viewers in Russia, as well as Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Belarus and other former USSR countries, both on television and Internet resources.

Having started with melodrama, RUSSKOE became a recognized authority of this genre on Russian TV, and later expanded the range of genres it works with. Now there are historical and social dramas, detectives and comedies in the company's portfolio.

In 2007, RUSSKOE produced its first TV movie Varenka. The story of a young provincial girl, who comes to Moscow in search of happiness, was a huge success in Russia and was continued in new seasons. Since then, Russia-1, one of the leading Russian TV channels, has become the Company's principal broadcasting partner. In 2016, RUSSKOE extended its scope of partners by launching projects for CTC and NTV channels.

The world's leading studios Warner Bros. (USA), Dori Media (Israel, Argentina), Baltmedia (Poland) and others are among international partners of the company. In 2012 in collaboration with Warner Bros., RUSSKOE produced an adapted version of the popular US detective series Without a Trace. In 2016, the company released Blind Date, an adaptation of Dori Media's hit romantic comedy Ciega a Citas.
