Dramatic political thriller TV series Homeland to start shooting in SA

Showtime’s dramatic thriller Homeland was a mixed bag in its third season, mining extremely tense scenes from a storyline that treaded through unnecessary waters. Thankfully, Fox 21 and Showtime are taking the series to an all-new location for Season 4, and production is set to commence this summer in Cape Town, South Africa, which will serve as the Middle East, despite all of its bottom southness.

The series will begin shooting in Cape Town in mid-June, and will continue through November, with Season 4 presumably beginning in its usual spot of late-September/early-October

Homeland has been a surefire awards magnet since it began, sweeping the 2012 Emmys and taking home Outstanding Lead Actress (Danes) and Outstanding Writing in a Drama (Henry Bromell) in 2013. As well, the show and its cast and crew have been the recipients of Golden Globes, AFI Awards, Edgar Awards and even a Peabody in 2011.
