Croatia gets an enormous amount of publicity, but it’s quite something else when Larry Namer, the founder of one of the most watched TV channels in the world decides to fly to Zagreb with plans to film a documentary about Croatia for the wildly popular American channel.
As Poslovni Dnevnik/Marta Duic writes on the 2nd of January, 2020, Larry Namer, a well known American media mogul, is the founder and owner of E! Entertainment Television, which is, as previously mentioned, by far one of the most famous TV channels in the entire world, on which the ultra-popular reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians, which follows the lives of Kim Kardashian and the rest of her family, has been broadcast since back in 2007.
The reason for Larry Namer’s arrival in the Croatian capital city of Zagreb was the documentary series Explore the World, an episode of which was recently filmed right here in Zagreb.
It is a series consisting of twelve episodes, done in documentary style, that should be presented to the viewers of the Chinese television stations Youku and Mango TV, which have more than 700 million subscribers, among other carefully selected world destinations. What better way to present gorgeous, urban Zagreb to tourists on a distant market?
Larry Namer, who has been producing various TV projects for the Chinese market for years now, especially those aimed at the younger, more affluent, travelling population, noted that this year alone, as many as 110 million Chinese tourists are on their way to various destinations worldwide, and Zagreb offers just about everything young and rich Chinese nationals might be interested in – friendly people, historical beauty and significance, culture and long, rich traditions.
In addition, they will also be filming a documentary about Croatia as a country, which will be a great promotion of the country in general. American Larry Namer, who has been working in show business for more than fifty years now and whose wealth is now estimated at nearly 4 billion US dollars, got better acquainted with Zagreb and discovered his favourite locations in the capital. He was hosted by famed Croatian fashion designer Aleksandra Dojčinović.
