Spain’s Globomedia is getting behind Luna, el misterio de Calenda (Moon), a 19th-century werewolf thriller that toplines Belen Rueda (The Orphanage), one of Spain’s biggest box office draws, as a judge sent to investigate mysterious occurrences in the benighted village of Calenda, reports Variety.
Globomedia’s new series are high concept and break new ground for the local biz — for example, Spain’s never had a werewolf series — and mix genres — Moon has a teen romance story strand, with the judge’s daughter falling for a local civil guard officer (Fran Perea).
The series will be budgeted north of Spain’s average Euros 500,000 ($688,000) an episode, though they’ll stop short of “Eagle’s” $1 million per episode.
