“In the thick of 1980′s Cold War hysteria, the Romanian government created the country’s most popular and longest-running series, Comrade Detective, a gritty and sleek police drama that not only entertained its citizens but also promoted Communist ideals and inspired a deep nationalism. The action-packed and blood-soaked first season finds Detectives Gregor Anghel and Iosef Baciu investigating the murder of fellow officer Nikita Ionesco and, in the process, unraveling a subversive plot to destroy their country that is fueled by what else but the greatest enemy: Capitalism. Though the beloved show was sadly forgotten about after the fall of the Berlin Wall, it has been rediscovered and digitally remastered, now with its main heroes voiced by Channing Tatum and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.”

Got that? If you can’t seem to figure out how you ever missed this Romanian hit – have no fear; before our sneak peek of the show’s first two episodes, creators Rhys Thomas (Documentary Now) and Brian Gatewood will present a clip history of some the rarer anti-American propaganda that influenced Comrade Detective, including some of the uncanny TV they found behind the Iron Curtain. Streaming on Amazon August 4th.
