Naomi Waite, Director of Marketing, Tourism NI comments: “Northern Ireland is an attractive destination to produce high quality film and television drama with international appeal. Most recently recognised as a filming location for the highly successful Game of Thrones series, screen tourism is now responsible for influencing the decision of tens of thousands more visitors to come to Northern Ireland each year.

We are delighted to see yet another opportunity for the spectacular beauty of Northern Ireland to be showcased to a global audience. We commend the producers for their dedication to bringing the history, culture and people of Northern Ireland to life in this unique and uplifting drama and we wish them every success.”
