Eugeniusz Bodo was a film director, producer and one of the most popular Polish actors and comedians of the inter-war period. An icon of 1930’s Polish popular culture, he also became a symbol for other Polish artists suffering in Soviet gulags. The script, written by Piotr Derwenda and Doman Nowakowski, showcases the stages of both his brilliant career and his personal struggles.
The series is produced by Akson Studio. The shoot for Bodo will begin on 26 May 2015. The show will be directed by Michał Kwieciński and Michał Rosa who are planning to shoot at nearly 300 locations in Warsaw, Żyrardów, Wrocław and Zgierz.
