Havana, a hot destination for tourists, models, musicians and famous photographers in the past year, will provide settings this week for the hit show “House of Lies,” the first U.S. show to shoot in Cuba. This project has been made possible by the improvement in relations between Washington and the island.
“House of Lies” is following in the steps of other U.S. shows, including “Late Night with Conan O’ Brien” and “Cuban Chrome,” which were also shot in Cuba.
Thanks to a permit from the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control, or OFAC, the final episode of the series’ fifth season will be shot in the Cuban capital and its suburbs.
The U.S. film and television industry is taking advantage of the thaw in relations with Cuba, discovering that the island provides colourful and exotic shooting locations.
