The creators of the new Amazon series COMRADE DETECTIVE Brian Gatewood and Alessandro Tanaka and series director Rhys Thomas talk about recreating a Cold War-era Romanian police drama that satirizes both Soviet and American propaganda of the 80's.  They discuss the 80’s cop shows and a popular Czech TV series that inspired COMRADE DETECTIVE, why graffiti was such a problem for them in post, and working with a Romanian crew that included a foul-mouthed translator.  Plus, a lesson about blindly following political dogma that is just as applicable today as it was during the Cold War.  

COMRADE DETECTIVE is available exclusively on Amazon beginning this Friday, August 4.  Visit www.amazon.com for more information.
