History[edit]

Kvartal 95 Studio was founded based on the KVN team Kvartal 95 which in turn is named after one of neighborhoods of Kryvyi Rih. The studio as well as the KVN team was created by Volodymyr Zelensky, who ran in the 2019 Ukrainian presidential election, and was elected President of Ukraine.[3] After Zelensky's inauguration most leading figures of Kvartal 95 joined Zelensky's administration as Deputy Heads of the Presidential Administration of Ukraine and one was appointed Deputy Head of the Ukrainian Secret Service.[4][5]

According to Zelensky[1], the objective of the company is to "make the world a better place, a kinder and more joyful place with the help of those tools that we have, which are humor and creativity". It has produced such popular (in Ukraine) shows as Vecherniy Kvartal (English: Evening Quarter), Svaty (English: The In-Laws), and Servant of the People.[1][2]
