Check Out 3 Internationally Acclaimed TV Shows You Love But Probably Didn’t Know Were Shot In Africa
The unique topography of Africa often draws in producers and set designers from numerous TV shows.
The continent has deserts, jungles, savannahs, beaches, ancient and contemporary structures, which give production teams plenty of choices when scouting for filming locations.
Today, let’s look at three critically and commercially successful TV shows which were shot in the continent.
3. Black Sails
Black Sails explores the mythology that precedes the famous novel Treasure Island so you can expect to see gorgeous beaches, old ships and swashbuckling at its very finest.
Although the Emmy-award winning pirate show has a Caribbean setting, the series was primarily filmed in South Africa, particularly in Cape Town Film Studios.
Monkeyland mentioned that the Michael Bay-produced TV series even saw the creation of an artificial beach and a village that has elements from the time period.
The creative team certainly did a good job, as it really looks like the sailors in the show are navigating the Caribbean seas.
Today, the Middle Ages-themed town is already a permanent part of the filming facility. Hopefully, it will be opened to visitors when they’re not in production so that tourists can enjoy these life-sized medieval houses.
