'The Island' being serialised in Crete for Greek TV
Victoria Hislop's best selling novel 'The Island' is being serialised for Greek Mega TV and is currently being filmed on location in Crete.

'The Island' is (loosely) based on real events concerning the life of the inhabitants of Plaka and Spinalonga in Crete, who are faced with leprosy (Hansen's disease).

The shooting of the series started in December 2009 by the producers TVE (Tileoptikes Business SA) and Indigo View (a Chania based audiovisual production company). Pre-production began a year ago, with the construction of scenery and costume preparation.

The award-winning movie director, Theodore Papadoulakis, from Chania (his films have won awards both in Greece and 24 international awards abroad) is directing the series.

The adaptation of the best seller has been written by Mirella Papaoikonomou, a writer with enormous success in Greek television.

Leading roles will be played by Stelios Maina, as George the boatman, and Katerina Lehou as his wife, a teacher from Plaka who is affected by leprosy and transferred to Spinalonga, leaving behind her husband and two daughters.

The series is being shot on location in Crete at Plaka, Spinalonga, Elounda, Agios Nikolas and Chania.
