La Palma island popular with TV crews in March 2017
Television crews from three channels are proving La Palma island popular. One Spanish, one Dutch and one German television crew will be filming on the island next month.
The office of the La Palma Film Commission, which is part of the Society for Economic Promotion and Development (Sodepal), has announced the recording of three television projects in March 2017 on the island.
The German chain ZDF plans to travel to La Palma in the early days of next month to record a show in which it will showcase different locations through the eyes of a group of German walkers.
The second of the projects that will arrive in La Palma in March is the well-known Dutch reality TV series ‘Dream House Wanted’ in which the program accompanies a couple in search of the house of their dreams abroad. In each episode a different country is visited and the most emblematic spaces of the place are shown. The program has an average of two million viewers per episode and is one of the most popular produced by Omroep MAX. The arrival of the crew is anticipated for the first fortnight.
By the end of March 2017 it is also expected that the island will host the recording of the “80cm” Spanish television program, in which routes will be filmed in different municipalities of the island and will be presented by the climber and climber Araceli Segarra, the first Spanish woman to conquer the summit of Everest.
The coordinator of the La Palma Film Commission, María José Manso, said that the arrival of these three projects in March “confirms the expectations we have for this year, in which we expect an increase in productions on the island compared to last year” .
The office of the La Palma Film Commission was created in April 2015 with the aim of promoting the natural resources of the island as a shooting set. In its first year of incorporation it has managed the arrival of 14 productions to the island, among which have been stand out television series, documentaries, television programs and several advertising spots.
