Netflix, one of the world’s largest online video services, has released the list of its Top 10 best foreign TV series in 2020, and it included a Russian show for the first time. Netflix released the Russian series To the Lake in October in its Original Series category, and it remained among the Top 10 most-viewed projects on the platform around the world for two weeks. At the peak of its popularity, it was in the Top 3 in terms of views internationally and in the Top 10 in 72 countries.

Netflix also revealed the secret algorithm for evaluating the popularity of media projects: success is measured based on views received in the first 28 days after being released.
