TV Series | 2001-2008
Over 200 episodes were produced (14 seasons) and also a feature film The Emperor’s Secret (2006) and multiple television movies based on the series. The series has won many awards in Finland including the golden Venla award and Telvis award – both for Best Entertainment Program.
The Production technique of The Autocrats was groundbreaking: a team of 5 artists made 14 minutes of new material each week, which was probably a world record at the time. This super-efficient workflow was necessary to keep the show’s political topics current.
Running time: 7’ pilot, 11’-15’ episodes
