RTVE & Dlo/Magnolia Align for Ruralitas Docuseries


RTVE and the Banijay Group company Dlo/Magnolia have joined forces to produce Ruralitas for La 2 in Spain.

Ruralitas will hear from those that have chosen to live in the most remote areas of Spain, touring the country and connecting the inhabitants of the sparsely-populated areas with the rest of the country. In the series, locals will offer first-hand accounts of living in rural communities and their motivations for doing so—from a cheesemaker in La Rioja and Alicante Civil Guard agents to the mayor of a small town in Almería.

In the first episode, Ruralitas travels to the mountainous inland area of Lugo and the remote village of Pena da Nogueira, which only counts six inhabitants. Featured in the premiere is Alberto, who returned to Pena da Nogueira to install his ancestors’ hives and make his passion for bees a way of life; and traveling veterinarians Verónica and Benito, who attend to the animals of those living in San Millán de Juarros onboard their mobile surgical unit.
