Created by Craig Mazin, the five-episode series was praised for its research, although many USSR loyalists stated that the show was created while keeping the American propaganda in mind. Nevertheless, from a storytelling point of view, the show was quite gripping and retains one of the top spots on IMDb.

Chernobyl Diaries is a 2012 American disaster horror film directed by Brad Parker and produced by Oren Peli, who also wrote the story.
