‘Uprising’ provides lift for Koliba Film Studio

Peacock mini to star Sutherland, Sobieski, Schwimmer

PRAGUE — Raffaella De Laurentiis’ NBC miniseries “Uprising” will begin shooting at Bratislava, Slovakia’s Koliba Film Studio on March 15, continuing the studio’s revival under new owner First Guarantor.

The Jon Avnet-helmed three-part miniseries is set in Warsaw’s Jewish ghetto, which is being built by the Danube River in Bratislava. The production, scheduled through the end of June, stars Donald Sutherland, Leelee Sobieski, David Schwimmer and Hank Azaria.

Iveta Hrdlovicova, head of production services, returned from the U.S. with three scripts for scouting. “For me it’s almost a miracle,” she told Daily Variety, referring to the new life injected by foreign productions at Koliba.

Hrdlovicova estimates costs in Bratislava are 15%-20% below those in neighboring Prague and Budapest.

First Guarantor is renovating and rebuilding the facility. To the studio’s main soundstage, one of the largest in the region, and adjoining second stage, it is adding two small specialized studios, and is upgrading film labs to provide full movie services, from camera and lighting rental to film developing.
