Coming soon! More Exclusive Maltese TV Content
Maltese TV Content drama enthusiasts have even more exciting content to look forward to this coming October as GO launches its next, exclusive production – LUNA.
Seeded in Sicily in the early 1990’s and depicting the life and love of a Sicilian teenage beauty who is born in a family where customs and tradition, not only influence life, but mould it, LUNA will be aired this coming October, exclusively on GO TV’s platform TOKIS.
“We are extremely excited to bring more exclusive TV content to our customers. This is the second executive production we have participated in and comes on the back of Chalet, which was exceptionally well received by the public last December,’ said Alison Mercieca, Senior Manager – Marketing at GO plc. ‘Local TV enthusiasts are hungry for more Maltese productions and we are proud to be able to deliver, as we remain committed to our investment of over €1 million during the course of the next three years to support the local industry so that our customers TV experience gets better every day,” she continued.
“We are delighted to take an active role in Malta’s TV industry. Our investment is not only injecting financial support to local production companies but as a result, it is also leading to the creation of further opportunities to showcase local talent, both locally and internationally,” explained Alison Mercieca.
Michael Vella Haber and Evelyn Saliba La Rosa who co-scripted LUNA, describe the storyline as “a roller coaster of emotions and a journey full of love, obedience, deceit, and patience where the protagonists have to manoeuvre in silence in an attempt to survive and protect loved ones. After thirty years of this, one phone call changes everything. A call that leads all involved to face the past, embrace the present and search for the missing”. ‘Collaborating with a company like GO on such a production means that we have more resources to overcome the many challenges we face as production companies whilst stretching our imaginations that little bit further,’ explained Michael Vella Haber.
The period drama Chalet, announced in December of last year, was the first announced production in collaboration with GO. This was followed by the announcement of popular TV series Iċ-Ċaqqufa which will return exclusively to GO Originals this coming December. In June, GO launched l-iSpettur Leonard, a spin-off from the popular series Simpatiċi which will be aired on GO’s Tokis platform followed by the announcement in July of the Women of George Cross Island series which will also start airing on GO Originals in October.
