MORE than 1,500 people queued outside Benidorm town hall, hoping to be hired as extras for a new Spanish television series. 

Auditioning began at 10am in the town hall’s Sala de Investigadores, with the queue growing longer throughout the day until 8pm when interviewing ceased.

Entitled Benidorm has nothing in common with the popular series that British viewers are familiar with.   

Instead, the Atresmedia programme is a romantic comedy about a Basque notary who learns that he has less than three months to live. 


He decides to go to Benidorm where he met his first – and only – love, determined to find her once more. 

The eight-episode series will be shot entirely in Benidorm over 16 weeks, with filming due to conclude next April. 

With a technical crew and a cast totalling more than 80, the production company confirmed that part of each team would be residents from Benidorm or Alicante province.
