"It's a beautiful country and great for filming," said co-creator, co-showrunner and screenwriter Ryan Condal. Miguel Sapochnik, co-showrunner and director, also said: "We went a bit on a whim and our jaws dropped".
"We came to a country that has never had a series of this scale. We came to a village that has never seen anything on this scale and in a very inaccessible place. But we had a lot of support from the residents. They gave up their homes, worked on the series and loved the experience. ", said Sofia Noronha, production manager. "This was a big event for Portugal, for our entire industry and for the entire local team."
The first season is now available on HBO Max.
