Croatia has once again attracted international TV production houses, and this time it is not Dubrovnik.

The new BBC series McMafia, a TV drama about the Russian mafia in London which stars James Norton, will start filming in the Croatian capital Zagreb in November, daily Jutarnji list reveals.

From 5 November to 2 December the BBC crew will shoot at a number of locations around the capital. A lot of the filming will take place at Zagreb’s Mirogoj cemetery.

McMafia is based on Misha Glenny’s bestseller about organised crime. The series will follow Norton who plays the son of a former Russian “Godfather” trying to follow a straighter path than his parents.
