Award-winning limited series The Family is a fictionalized account of the final three days before the arrest of the former Serbian and Yugoslav president Slobodan Milošević on March 31, 2001, which ultimately lead to his extradition to the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia to stand trial for war crimes. The series won multiple awards at the Sarajevo Film Festival in 2021, including best drama series and best actor for Boris Isaković, who plays Slobodan Milošević. The Family is part historical fiction, part thriller, and part intimate family drama within the context of a region grappling with how to move on from the bloody Yugoslav Wars. As the drama unfolds, the perspective is a close-up view of family ties and shifting allegiances from both inside Milošević’s Belgrade home and within the fraught halls of a fractured government in the lead-up to his arrest. The Family adds to the expanding depth of content from more countries around the world on MHz Choice and is the first series from Serbia to premiere on the service since the release of The Scent of Rain in the Balkans in 2017.
