Netflix’s Intimacy starts shooting in the Basque Country

The drama is the latest of Netflix’s sizeable Spanish slate to go into production. Since 2016 over fifty titles have been made in across Spain in regions such as Andalucia, Aragon, Asturias, Cataluna, Canarias, Comunidad de Madrid, Galicia and Navarre.

Intimacy chronicles the lives of four women who are forced to tread a fine line between what belongs to the public and private life after a sex tape of a politician with a promising future is leaked to the press. The series is shooting in the Basque Country in the north of Spain.

Headlining the drama are acresses Itziar Ituño (La Casa de Papel, Todas las lunas), Patricia López Arnaiz (Feria, Ane), Emma Suárez (Criminal, Julieta), Verónica Echegui (Three Days of Christmas, 3 Caminos), Ana Wagener (The Innocent, Welcome to Eden) and Yune Nogueiras (Akelarre).

The series is produced by Txintxua for Netflix and directed by Jorge Terregrossa (Hache, ÉLITE), Ben Gutteridge(The Naked Man, Steak Knife), Marta Font (Mira lo que has hecho) and Koldo Almandoz (Oreina).

Netflix announced a boost in its commitment to Spanish audiovisual fiction by expanding its production hub in Tres Cantos, Madrid. The extension will see double the amount of sets as well as new post-production facilities completed by late 2022. In 2021 production from the streamer is expected to hire over 1,500 professionals alone. Other projects in development include a Spanish version of Bird Box by Nostromo Pictures and Un Cuento Perfecto.

Spain has a 30% tax credit for international and domestic productions.
