Before he was a hero of the people in the Ukraine and now worldwide, Volodymyr Zelenskyy was an actor in a top show in the country.
Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s Servant of the People turned out to be a prophetic show, as the now-President of the Ukraine played a fictional president of, you guessed it, the Ukraine.
Now, to support the #Slava Ukraini cause and contribute to the country’s resistance against Russia, Netflix is making that show free for streaming.
Zelenskyy’s show is called Servant of the People and is a comedy satire series that’s essential watching nowadays.
In that show, Zelenskyy plays a teacher who becomes a viral sensation when he complains about corruption, and that video eventually helps him become president of Ukraine.
The show’s success catapulted Zelensky’s popularity in Ukraine. As the show ended production, Zelenskyy decided to run for president in a party called “Servant of the People”.
He won that election in a landslide and the rest is history.
The show itself hasn’t been available for streaming worldwide since last year, before the Russia invasion, when Netflix removed it from their lineup.
Now, the company added it again for US viewers and, to make sure it reaches more people, made it free to watch. You can stream The Servant of the People on Netflix right now.
