Слуга народу

In case you missed it, season one of Слуга народу (Servant of the People) is available on Netflix in Canada. It’s a sitcom starring Volodymyr Zelensky, who plays a humble school teacher who accidentally becomes President of Ukraine.

Zelensky, of course, went on to become the actual President of Ukraine, running for a party called Слуга народу (Servant of the People).

More recently he’s been embroiled in the impeachment drama of another TV-star-turned-President.

You might assume this means Zelensky, like his American counterpart, is an untalented blowhard; on the contrary: he’s a talented actor, and the sitcom is well-produced and entertaining.
