According to the Croatian Audio Visual Centre (HAVC), the AMC studios which is globally known for its popular TV series ''Walking Dead'' has started filming TV series ''The Terror'' on the Croatian island of Pag.
Filming of the 10 episodes of the AMC series ‘’The Terror’’ produced by Ridley Scott has already begun on the 3rd of April 2017; the first segment of filming will last through the 29th of April, whilst the series is to be broadcasted in autumn 2017.
Based on an adaptation of the bestselling novel by Dan Simmons, “The Terror” is a supernatural thriller, which tells the true story on the disappearance of a Royal Naval expedition crew in 1847 who were searching for the Northwest Passage.
The Franklin Expedition led by Captain John Franklin (Ciaran Hinds) and Captain Francis Crozier (Jared Harris) is frozen in the ice and stuck for two years with their nearest neighbour more than 800 miles away. A mysterious predator – a terrifying monster that stalks the ship and its crew in an uncertain and desperate game of survival, attacks their ship.
“The Terror” is written by David Kajganich (“True Story,” “A Bigger Splash”), who will also serve as co-show runner with Soo Hugh (“The Whispers,” “The Killing”). Executive producers are Ridley Scott (“The Good Wife,” “The Man In The High Castle”) and David W. Zucker (“The Good Wife,” “The Man In The High Castle”), Alexandra Milchan (“The Wolf of Wall Street”) and Scott Lambert (“Paranoia”) as well as Guymon Casady (“Game of Thrones,” “Steve Jobs”).
The production has employed 85 local technicians and crew, and 60 local extras.
It is interesting to note that through Croatia’s 20 percent filming incentive the production will benefit from a return of investment of the overall budget spent in the country. In the last five years of incentive scheme, 34 productions filmed in Croatia and spent nearly 400 million Kunas. Apart from the economic benefits, they also provided a global promotion of the beautiful locations in Croatia.
