Russian state TV is working on its own version of Chernobyl, a series based on the worst nuclear accident in history.
The NTV drama will deviate from the acclaimed HBO series by claiming that the CIA was involved in the disaster.
HBO's miniseries, which concluded on Monday, received the highest ever score for a TV show.
The Hollywood Reporter says that the Russian culture ministry has contributed $463,000 to the show.
The No. 4 reactor at the Chernobyl nuclear plant exploded on April 26, 1986 in the Ukraine.
At least 31 people were killed in the immediate aftermath, and the effects continue to be felt to this day.
