Ficarra and Picone are preparing to return to the set for the filming of the "Incastrati" series, which will be streamed on Netflix
Ficarra and Picone are the most loved Sicilian duo in Italy. Veterans from running Striscia la Notizia (apparently the last) are preparing for a new adventure, indeed a real novelty.
As reported by the newspaper La Repubblica, after having shot many successful films – such as Born tired, 7 and 8, Summer time and the first Christmas – this time the actors will try their hand at shooting a series in streaming entitled Get stuck, landing on one of the most famous streaming platforms in the world.
A choice that comes at the darkest moment of entertainment and cinema in Italy, which have suffered a sudden setback, due to restrictions from Covid 19. Here is what we know about the new project by Ficarra and Picone.
Debut on Netflix
The Incastrati series represents not only the return of Ficarra and Picone to the set, but also their debut on Netflix. Yes, according to Repubblica, the episodes will be streamed on the most famous platform in the world, where the films of the Sicilian duo have appeared in recent months. Apparently Netflix had been "courting" them for some time and the new series would be the result of the agreement finally reached.
When shooting begins
Filming, which will be in the hands of the Palermo production company Tramp Limited srl, will begin on April 26 for the first scenes shot indoors. Then they will move outside starting from 6 May and until the 11th of the same month, according to the information collected by the Republic.
Where the series will be shot
To confirm the start of filming but above all the places where the Incastrati series will be shot, an ordinance of the Urban Mobility Service of the Municipality of Palermo arrives. As reported by the document, in fact, the set will be set up among the main streets and squares of the Sicilian capital. Excellent news for the fellow countrymen of Ficarra and Picone, but also for the duo who after a long time are preparing to return to the opera in their hometown.
What do we know about the plot
At the moment we don't have much information on the series starring Ficarra and Picone. Not even the plot has been revealed, but we can imagine that it will be a story with a high rate of comedy, as it is in the style of the beloved Sicilian duo. The director of photography Daniele Ciprì has not been unbalanced: “I cannot reveal the plot. Because I never tell what other directors do, because Salvo and Valentino don't want to and because Netflix, if you do, will kick you off the set ”.
Who is Daniele Ciprì
As for Ciprì, for the famous Palermo photographer Incastrati it is not the first collaboration with Netflix, nor with Ficarra and Picone. He has already worked on the set of Zero, available on the streaming platform starting from April 21, and on the film Il primo Natale. “I don't personally love seriality – he told Repubblica – but I like that I will compare myself with a genre like comedy. From Palermo and to tell about this city, Ficarra and Picone do a very similar job, but at the same time different, to that of mine and Franco Maresco ”. Daniele Ciprì is one of the personalities who helped tell Palermo and its inhabitants, forming a truly unrepeatable duo with Maresco. They are responsible for works – which have become true cult – such as the Cinico TV anthology, the feature films Totò who lived his times and The Return of Cagliostro, but also numerous documentaries.
