The hit Bulgarian TV series, "Staklen Dom" (Glass Home), has been received with much excitement in Macedonia after airing on Macedonian TV "Kanal 5".

"Staklen Dom", which has become the first Bulgarian TV series to be shown in Macedonia, has already aired on various channels in Bulgaria's other neighbors – Turkey, Serbia, Romania, and Greece.

Interestingly, the hit film has generated only positive reviews in the Macedonian media, many of which are known for being vocally anti-Bulgarian for political reasons.

The Staklen Dom series, a production of the bTV channel, are deemed the most successful Bulgarian-made TV series ever.

"Glass Home" is a family drama story with criminal features. It shows the Bulgarian society as it appears in the real life. Viewers can see everything that is happening now in Bulgaria", said Dimitar Mitovski, executive producer of the TV series.

The saga behind the plot reveals the story of Kamen Kasabov (Kalin Vrachanski), who comes back from the United States for the 60th birthday of his father, with whom he had not spoken in 18 years.

Father Dimitar Kasabov (Stefan Danailov) is one of the owners of a shopping mall and a man of rough character. A gangland murder, twists of fate, secret relationships between the characters will change everyone's lives in the small world of the mall forever. All in all, the appearance of Kamen is set to cause dramatic chain reaction of events, including the emergence of a love triangle between him, his father, and his father's second wife Boryana Kasabova (Elena Petrova).

For the first time a production of the type stirs such huge interest not only locally but abroad as well. Staklen Dom is also known for featuring in its second season the acting US Ambassador in Bulgaria James Warlick.

Warlick, who got a special permission from US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, to star in the TV series in the role of the US Ambassador, has become the first acting US diplomat to appear in a movie.
