COMRADE DETECTIVE Red Carpet Premiere Photos

TV

Last night, Amazon Studios hosted a red carpet premiere of Comrade Detective, the best 80s Romanian cop show you’ve never seen, until now. The action-packed first season follows Detectives Gregor Anghel and Joseph Baciu, voiced by Channing Tatum and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Both stars were in attendance at the ArcLight Hollywood (and Channing was accompanied by wife Jenna Dewan Tatum) to celebrate the series premiere along with Jenny Slate, who also provides a character voice for the show. It was a fun evening in celebration of a show that provides a true portal into a different time and place and a powerful reminder of what art can be – and it is now ready to be seen by the modern world on a larger scale than ever before.

**Comrade Detective premieres today on Amazon Prime Video**

ABOUT COMRADE DETECTIVE

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 sleek and gritty police show 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 (played by Florin Piersic, Jr and voiced by Channing Tatum) and Joseph Baciu (played by Corneliu Ulici and voiced by Joseph Gordon-Levitt) 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 Tatum and Gordon-Levitt. Comrade Detective is a true portal into a time and place and a powerful reminder of what art can be—and it is now ready to be seen by the modern world on a larger scale than ever before.
