British series 'The Trip' comes to Malaga
The scene is set for Michael Winterbottom at the Parador de Gibralfaro. The British filmmaker is shooting 'The Trip to Spain' in Malaga, the third season of a series which combines comedy and gastronomy starring actors Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon.
'The Trip' made its debut in 2010 and was set in the English countryside. There, an actor was selected by a newspaper to review the local restaurants. He did not want to do it alone so he scrolled through the phonebook until he stumbled upon a colleague to accompany him. This is all fiction. In reality, the pair are played by Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon.
The production had so much success that the BBC took the show to Italy for the second season. Now it is Sky who have assumed control of the comedy for its tour of Spain. In addition to the Parador de Gibralfaro, the production plans to film in Comares and Maro. In the meantime, Winterbottom has been seen in the Refectorium restaurant at La Malagueta.source surinenglish
