Of the 55 years that Adrián Suar turns, more than 40 he spent in the world of television, where he debuted as an actor at the age of 13. However, he refounded his life and career 29 years ago when the ideas that came and went in his head came together behind a name: Pol-Ka, his successful production company that has created dozens of stories, some of which have become milestones in Argentine TV.
Adrián Kirzner Schwart was born in Queens, New York, on March 25, 1968, although it was hardly a circumstance, since his life developed since he was a child in Buenos Aires, where he arrived when he was two years old.
His place in the world was Villa Crespo and not far from there, in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of Chacarita, it was the headquarters of the first office of the production company, whose name hides a special tribute to Suar: “Polka” was what he called his maternal grandmother.

“I had a great connection with her that marked me for life. She was a grandmother who was present, affectionate, close, with infinite and unconditional love, ”Adrián Suar recounted some time ago in an interview with the Infobae portal. All that presence that stands out from Grandma Polka had to do with her upbringing, because she was a fundamental support in her childhood, at a time when her parents Yehuda Kirzner Schwartz and Lilian Keller had returned to the United States.

In 1994, Suar joined Fernando Blanco with whom he decided to found Pol-Ka to capture an idea for a program he had. Choosing the name of what would become the most important television content producer was easy for Suar:
“Calling my production company with my grandmother’s name was a tribute. I don’t know… at the time of founding it something went down. And since then I felt that this path was illuminated. She officiated as a medium for him to use her name. She accompanied me, and how she accompanied me! ”, Said El Chueco.
That initial Pol-Ka program was a popular success and had a huge impact on television, because it changed its aesthetics and way of recording. The name was the same as a children’s game, “Poliladron” and the story, which contained drama and comedy, was that of a policewoman who fell in love with a lovable thief. That thief was 26 years old and was the owner of the production company, Adrián Suar. Grandma Polka would be proud.

“She is unforgettable. Her permanent joy, her look that she never asked for anything in return, her kisses, her cakes. Because she cooked so well. Her milanesas were richer than anyone else because they were one more pamper. Like even her financial help, because she always had some tickets to give us when we needed them, ”Suar described emotionally, adding to this story her three brothers Jeffrey, Paul and Sabrina.
The success of “Poliladron” was so great that Suar, after the end of that cycle, wanted to stop it by predicting that “I’m going to have some failure.” However, the achievements continued and endured -without losing quality- the economic shocks in Argentina at the beginning of this century.

What he never divorced was his producer and his successes, many of them on eltrece, a channel for which he has been Programming Manager for 22 years.
