Scripps Networks Interactive’s Travel Channel has announced a co-production with the Romanian Tourist Board to make Wild Carpathia, claimed to be a landmark mini-series.
Wild Carpathia, focused on the eponymous mountain range and inspired by an original concept developed by The European Nature Trust, a charity dedicated to the preservation of Europe’s last remaining wilderness, debuted 2011 to millions across the globe.
Wishing to consolidate this success, the Romanian Tourist Board has partnered with Travel Channel to create two more episodes to be produced by Almond Films. The new films will explore the forests and landscapes of Carpathia, along with the local people and personalities who are working to preserve this diverse region. […]
The series has been backed by the Romanian Minister of Tourism, Maria Grapini, who worked closely with Scripps Networks Interactive. Commenting on the new deal, she said: “I am glad that we could sign such an important contract for promoting Romania worldwide. It’s very satisfying that through my mandate as a Delegate Minister for Tourism, Business and SMEs within the Romanian Government I am able to take this ahead, particularly as it has been waiting for years to be signed.
“I am hugely optimistic about the impact of this project for Romania’s promotion, made with professionalism by the Travel Channel and Almond Films team. After watching the first episode of Wild Carpathia documentary, I felt proud that I am Romanian. I also want to take this opportunity to thank in person HRH, Prince of Wales, for helping to promote the beauty and importance of our countryside“.
Added Nick Thorogood, SVP content and marketing, Scripps EMEA: “We are thrilled to be partnering with the Romanian Tourism Authority and to be bringing this exciting documentary project about this visually stunning region to a global audience“.
