Fox hit TV show ‘Mental’ brings Hollywood to Colombia

'Mental', the new Fox drama series that premiered with high ratings in the U.S. last week was not filmed in Hollywood but in a studio in the Colombian capital city of Bogota.

Producers chose to film the 13 episode drama series, set in the psychiatric department of a Los Angeles hospital, in a 1,500 meter square Bogota TV studio.

Why Bogota?

"Basically because of production costs," Samuel Duque, the vice president of Fox Telecolombia Production and Operations told El Colombiano.

"To make the show in Colombia costs about half of what it would cost to make it in an L.A. studio," Duque said.

He added that the Bogota studio where 'Mental' was filmed is the largest television studio in Latin America.
