Dušan Lazarević

United Kingdom


Dušan Lazarević was born in Belgrade, Yugoslavia. He graduated from The London Film School. His graduation film, THE HOTTEST DAY OF THE YEAR, was sent as a British entry to AMPAS student Oscars and competed at a number of festivals throughout the world. He now lives in London, UK. His mainstream break was creating challenging television drama for young audiences, one of which was a children’s animated series, LIVING WITH LIONEL, a worldwide hit on the FoxKids Channel. Subsequently, Dušan has built an extensive track record as a director of British prime-time television drama. Amongst his recent work is the award-winning TV series BESA, a psychological crime thriller, set in the world of the Albanian mafia in the Balkans. Currently, he has several of his own projects in development, the most ambitious one being FAST-FORWARD REWIND, a triptych of eerie time-travel stories exploring the human condition stripped to its spiritual fundamentals in the pseudo-futuristic vortex we are living at this time in history.
