Movistar Plus+ has announced the start of filming for Galgos, its new original series. The fiction, which will recount the internal struggles for control of a family business, has a cast headed by Adriana Ozores, Óscar Martínez, Marcel Borràs, María Pedraza, Luis Bermejo and Patricia López Arnaiz.
Defined by Movistar Plus+ as a ‘business and family drama’, the series stars the Somarriba family and the Galgos company, a food giant that has seen three of its generations grow. Its members will have to face the crisis in the sector, exacerbated by internal corruption, pressure from private labels and the threat of new regulations that seek healthier food, which could lead to the closure of the group’s oldest factory.
Then elements such as loyalty, love, trust and family come into play, as opposed to betrayal, selfishness, control and deceit that threaten to close the company. Directed by Félix Viscarret and Nelly Reguera, Galgos, an original Movistar Plus+ series produced by Buendía Estudios, began filming in September in Madrid and will continue until December in different locations in the Spanish capital, Cantabria and Brussels.
“Carmina Somarriba (Adriana Ozores) and Emilio Somarriba (Luis Bermejo) are the heirs of Grupo Galgo, a family business specializing in pastries, chocolates and baby food. The crisis in the sector, the imminent arrival of the sugar law and the lack of leadership of Emilio, president of Galgo since his father passed away, make the company not have its best moment.
Gonzalo Díaz (Óscar Martínez), Carmina’s husband, after many years working alongside Emilio has his own plans for the company, but a sudden and unexpected decision by Carmina causes a family and business earthquake that will also affect their children: Blanca (Patricia López Arnáiz), Guzmán (Marcel Borràs), Jimena (María Pedraza) and Julián (Jorge Usón). The struggle for power will separate them, and Carmina will have to choose between saving the company or her family”, we read in the official synopsis of Galgos.
