All
the show takes place in the fictional country of Caledonia. It was invented by the author
the idea of “Embassy” Victor Soghomonyan. In the story, the Caledonia is on the verge of
the adoption of the “anti-Russian package”, it is actively pushing for this, the US government and
UK. A necessary provocation to the entire population of Caledonia was supported
their government in the fight against Russia.

“Detective
“The Embassy” is about the relationship between the major powers in the history of the world
policy. Heroes of the political arena have no right to error, but they also
people too weak, professionally, and humanely, says the Director
project Artem Aksenenko. — They determine the fate of the state and its reputation.
The project was the consultants, representatives of state authorities, which
partly controlled dramatic UPS and downs: as much as possible, as it is impossible that
it would be true. Supervision by professionals from this field
existed, so we wouldn’t be lying somewhere, not accurately. History, of course,
fictional, but the actions that have taken our heroes, had to have
some vital Foundation to fantasies that
could do state officials, being in such circumstances.”

In
the project involved a large caste of actors, including foreign.
Latvian actor Martin Wilson played the role of President of the Caledonia: “I have
never played the President, it’s an interesting experience. For me it was a difficult text:
very diplomatic, with a bunch of political terms. The writers
consulted with employees of diplomatic departments, the Director of me sometimes
said, “Sorry, it’s not me.” This problem arose not only at me, but
Russian colleagues. The words were so put together that you both said
something and said nothing. And it seems that you’re right, but in fact no
specifics. But that is exactly what they communicate”.
