According to the Clark Development Corp., Dara chose to spotlight Clark as the filming location for “Idol Truck.” 

Among the sites where the show was filmed were the Hotel Stotsenberg, Cafe BOM, Hotel Seoul, and other areas within the zone.

With its strategic location, vast green spaces, and world-class facilities, Clark has drawn the attention of local and international productions and filmmakers. 

Some of the shows that have made Freeport the filming location include the Korean drama titled “Big Bet” and local television shows such as “Ang Probinsyano” and “It’s Showtime.”
