19 June 2017 11:01 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Leveraging the Basque Country’s advantageous tax regime, Laniakea Capital, a new Bilbao-based film and TV label run by Eduardo Carneros (“Timecrimes”) and Alejandro Miranda (“Buried”), is making its producing debut with sci-fi TV drama “Strange Fishing Days.”

The project has been selected to be pitched at Conecta Fiction, the new Latin America-Europe TV drama forum which runs June 20-23 in Galicia’s Santiago de Compostela in Spain.

“Strange Fishing Days,” a social allegory, weighs in as low-fi sci-fi embodying multiverse theory.

The series follows Alejo Caminos, an astrophysics teacher, who suffers a deep existential crisis. He constructs a machine that allows him to experience other versions of himself in multiple alternative realities which could have been his life, if his decisions and circumstances had been otherwise.

Created by Javier Echániz (“Tiempo si aire”), Asier Guerricaechebarria (“Tinguaro: The Sun Lizards”) and María Maestre (“Las Acacias”), each series’ episode will focus »
