The production company Standup etcetera filmed the  the show’s first episode in July in north-western Lapland.

If a Finnish TV channel buys the idea, a 40-episode reality TV show about the lives of reindeer herders could take off.

The final decision will likely be made in September.The idea for the TV show originated with Sven Pahajoki, a journalist and writer from Lapland.
