2016-04-13 - 3:03 pm - Terence Hill talks about the future
In the latest issue of the Italian magazine Sorrisi e canzoni TV there is an interview with Terence Hill. The journalist Tiziana Lupi has called Terence Hill in Los Angeles, where Terence is visiting his son Jess. Terence talks about of his family vacation in Hawaii, before he explains his exit from the series Un passo dal cielo. The reason therefore is that he cannot play two main roles in big series any longer. So he had to leave one of the series. He chose "Un passo dal cielo", because in his opinion the story of the ranger Pietro is told to the end. He is convinced that his successor in the series will be very good and that the series will continue to have success. The exit from one series also means that he will continue with the other series. And so Terence confirms an upcoming eleventh season of Don Matteo. The shooting will start next year. Until then Terence intends to devote himself to things that are lying left in the past years. He does not exclude a short television project in the meantime, but he highlighted the word short. We are excited and will keep you up to date.
