A new reality TV show about La Sala Puerto Banus could hit screens later this year
It’s been a while since we’ve seen a ‘fly on the wall’ documentary about life on the Costa del Sol, but thanks to a new collaboration between the Sala Group and Warrior Film Productions this may soon change.
When Ian Radford, Chairman of Sala Group met Jeff Clarke, Managing Director of Warrior Film Productions at a charity event on the Costa del Sol, they soon started brainstorming. They both agreed that a story showing the good, the bad and occasionally ugly truth about living and working on the Costa del Sol based on staff and visitors to both La Sala Banus and La Sala by the Sea would be a great topic for a reality TV series.
Initial footage has already been filmed under the direction of local cinematographer Mark Beltran and will be presented as a mini pilot for the proposed series.
It’s planned that there will be an initial six one-hour programmes following the lives and back stories of a number of those working for La Sala but it won’t be all glitz and glamour as it will tackle the past year and how it has affected all involved.
All of those being interviewed will be seated in an iconic red chair, often placed somewhere away from the venues in unusual yet important Costa del Sol locations and wherever possible, there will be celebrity interviews depending upon who is in town at that moment.
This will be a reality show with a difference as it reveals not just personal relationships or days and nights in the venues but will look at how the Costa del Sol and its residents from many different countries and cultures have coped with Covid-19 and the uncertainty of the situation with La Sala as the main focus.
Many businesses have sadly not made it due to the pandemic, however the Sala Group will make a very interesting subject as viewers see whether they will bounce back and possibly expand due to the opportunities that have arisen from the mega-shake up that the pandemic has created.
If all goes well then filming is set to start in the next few months. Stay tuned for the latest updates!
