According to The Hollywood Reporter, legendary rockers DEEP PURPLE will make a cameo in Israeli TV series "Atlantica".
The band's lead singer, Ian Gillan, and bassist, Roger Glover, will appear as themselves in the series, which focuses on an aspiring rock act from Jerusalem. They will shoot the cameo this coming weekend while DEEP PURPLE is in Israel for two scheduled concerts at Tel Aviv's Nokia Arena.
DEEP PURPLE's appearance in "Atlantica" came about through a combined effort between casting director Amira Buzaglo and promoter Udi Appelboim, whose production company is bringing DEEP PURPLE to Israel for the band's third visit to the country.
"Atlantica" will premiere in Israel at the end of the year on cable provider Hot.
