Nova TV is filming a daily soap opera for its Voyo video portal about a group of young people living in a large apartment in Prague. It is based on the German format Berlin – Tag & Nacht that has been produced by RTL since 2011.
"The daily series will provide a realistic view of a group of young people living in a large apartment in the centre of Prague. The occupants deal with their everyday joys, worries, loves and disappointments just like most other people. All sorts of relationships develop between them - friendship, love, but also intrigues or even hatred. The project is exceptional in terms of production because all roles in the series are cast exclusively with non-actors who have zero experience in front of the camera,"
TV Nova announced.
Apart from Voyo, the series Praha – den a noc will be aired on Nova Fun. It is produced in cooperation with the production company Joy Department. The launch date will be specified later. The series is planned to run from Monday to Friday, the footage of each episode will be about 45 minutes.
"We would like to show that with a new design, daily relationship series can be attractive for young audiences,"
added the producer, Vít Pokorný. The show has a very schematic and simplistic script that only outlines the main plot lines in advance, leaving the dialogues and interactions to the actors themselves. The situation on the set is very much like a live broadcast and the shifts in the plot are often a surprise not only for the audience but also for the crew.
