Italian ‘Apprentice’ to film in Jerusalem


JERUSALEM (JTA) — The Italian version of “The Apprentice” will film an episode of the reality show in Israel.

Five of the contestants and a crew of about 40 will film next week in Jerusalem.

The contestants will be sent on a search for five symbols located around the city, including a menorah, to expose them and the Italian viewing public to sites of tourist and cultural significance.

The show’s producers decided to film outside the country and in Israel after receiving an invitation from Israel’s Tourism Ministry.

“We look forward to cooperation with each and every one of the contestants in the future when they come to do business here in Israel,” said Israeli Tourism Minister Uzi Landau.

The 45-minute episode will air on the Sky Italia network.
