“We decided to shoot in Croatia because of its beautiful and unique landscape. Appropriate locations are crucial to the story and we are happy that we managed to find them right here. Another good reason is that Croatia has a reputation when it comes to working with foreign productions, ” said Nicklas Wiström Nicastro, the producer of the series “Piratskatten hemlighet” (Christmas in the Sun) to Novi List, which is watched by millions of Swedes every December.
The series, which is shown on national TV station SVT, runs from 1 – 24 December, and has been a tradition on television in Sweden since the 1960’s. It is the first time that the series is being filmed outside of Sweden. This December’s series will feature the adventures of two elementary school students who come to the island of Brač for Christmas with their families.
