The Channel 5 series is filming in 20 different locations around Malta and is doubling it for other European countries including Spain, France, Morocco, Italy and Portugal. Malta will also feature as Malta in the production.
Over 60 local crew have been employed for the project over a period of seven weeks, and it is expected to generate around €2.3m into the local economy, according to the Malta Film Commission.
The eight-part murder mystery will be produced by Clapperboard Studios with Gordon Anderson (Lovesick, Shameless) directing.
Commenting on the host country, Clapperboard's producer Sandra McIver said, “When one considers Malta’s size, we couldn’t believe we managed to replicate six different countries in such a small space.”
This is the fourth project Clapperboard has produced in Malta over the past two years.
Malta film commissioner, Johann Grech, noted how more productions are choosing Malta. ”I must say that we always deliver our promise. So more repeat business. Malta’s reputation in the global film industry is strong and we are building a sustainable film industry.
“We are investing more. We are building more. We are strengthening more our relationships together. A film industry growing everyday. Creating new opportunities everyday. Becoming a solid back-to-back film industry. And we are so determined to achieve more.”
Minister for tourism, Clayton Bartolo, added: “this production shows the versatility in our proposition to global filmmakers. Our strategy which is built on Malta’s generous fiscal incentives is leading us to the creation of careers in this industry. We will keep working to create a world-class film industry in Malta”.
