Rakuten TV has started filming its next original production: Discovering Canary Islands, an adventure reality show hosted by Pilar Rubio which, in its first series, will travel around the Canary Islands. The show will uncover the most incredible and unusual myths surrounding the islands by immersing contestants in the local culture and traditions. For the first time, an OTT platform (Over The Top) is committed to an international format where 8 contestants of 8 different nationalities will compete to be the best explorer in Europe.
The contestants, who are still to be revealed, will discover that the Canary Islands’ number, is not eight… but nine! La Graciosa, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Tenerife, La Palma, El Hierro and La Gomera hide their own legends. Between reality and folklore, history and fiction, it is said that there is a ninth island: San Borondón. Known as Whale Island, because of the way it appears and disappears in the waters of the Atlantic Ocean, it has been the dream of cartographers and sailors for centuries.
