May 2024

Netflix and Alea have wrapped filming on “Animal salvaje”, their upcoming comedy miniseries starring the acclaimed Luis Zahera (Entrevías, Unauthorized living).

Set against the picturesque backdrop of Galicia, “Animal salvaje” delves into the life of Antón, a seasoned rural veterinarian who finds himself unexpectedly employed at a posh pet boutique managed by his niece Uxía (Lucía Caraballo, No me gusta conducir). As Antón navigates this unfamiliar territory, he embarks on a journey of self-discovery, realizing that family bonds and professional challenges can be as complex and unpredictable as the animal kingdom itself.

Joining Zahera and Caraballo in the ensemble cast are Carmen Ruiz (Amar en tiempos revueltos) and Antonio Durán “Morris” (Fariña), bringing their talents to this heartwarming and humorous tale.

Aitor Gabilondo (Patria, Muted) and Jota Aceytuno (Urban. La vida es nuestra) helm the project as executive producers, masterfully weaving together the series’ narrative threads amidst the stunning landscapes of Galicia. The fictional town of Topomorto serves as the primary setting, a captivating blend of locations across A Coruña’s municipalities, including Dioño, A Calle, Pontemaceira, Parroquia, Teo, Vedra, and the vibrant city of Santiago de Compostela.

“Animal salvaje”’s premise stems from a thought-provoking question: What if an alien were to observe our planet and witness our devotion to our pets? How would they interpret our actions and the intricate dynamics between humans and their furry companions?”, ponders executive producer Jota Aceytuno.
