The murder mystery tells the story of a woman named Zoe Walker, who travels from Manchester to Ibiza to find out what happened to her brother, who was murdered on the island in the 1990s.

Where was White Lines filmed?

Although the show is set in Ibiza, much of it is filmed in other locations - such as Madrid, Majorca and Almería.

Angela Griffin, who plays Anna, recently opened up about the filming experience on This Morning, telling hosts Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford: "There was some Ibiza filming, but I wasn’t involved in it. There were some younger versions of the characters, so they got to go."

She added: "We shot in Madrid between July and August. We shot there because there weren’t many people there because it's 41-42 degrees. But we would do night shoots so it was a little cooler."

Speaking about the location of the show, executive producer Andy Harries told Deadline: "Shows full of sunshine, full of light, full of beautiful landscapes are always important. This is a fantastic time [to be launching].

"People can’t go to the Balearic Islands right now and this is the next best thing."

What is White Lines about?

The official Netflix plot synopsis reads: "When the body of a legendary Manchester DJ is discovered 20 years after his mysterious disappearance from Ibiza, his sister, Zoe Walker, returns to the beautiful Spanish island to find out what happened.

It adds that she "leaves her quiet life behind to investigate her brother's disappearance in Ibiza, where she quickly heads down a decadent and dangerous path."

Angela said that the show is the 'perfect escapism' for the current situation, saying: "It's such a brilliant show, it’s the perfect escapism for what is gong on right now. We’re going to jet you over to Ibiza, take you to all the super clubs, take you on a thrilling ride. It’s the perfect show for right now."
