Greece 2015: problems with no end for national final
Fotis Konstantopoulos (Greece)
ATHENS, GREECE – Delay after delay for the Greek national final due to sponsor and venue problems but still the country is creative enough to make even more problems. With new ERT coming up to replace NERIT, Antenna TV added one more problem to the organisers.
Originally set for Piraeus Municipal Theatre, the Greek national final is still searching for a venue which NERIT and MAD TV can afford. The show anyway will take place on March 4th but we don’t know where. Somehow we might end at an ERT studios like in 2010 and 2011 selections. Who knows.
In the meantime Greece has also problems with the hosts of the show. Originally decided to have Mary Synatsaki and Doretta Papadimitriou, Antenna TV vetoed Mary’s participation due to a contract with the morning show “To Proino”. Therefore Greece also seeks for hosts. Anyway NERIT said that official announcements will take place on February 17th. But after 3 weeks of postponements, don’t hold tight on the date!
LONG LIVE THE GREEK DRAMA!
