Talesmith, Cineflix to co-produce ‘Takaya: Lone Wolf’

Talesmith has partnered up with Cineflix and Wild Wolf Media to co-produce Takaya: Lone Wolf (WT), a documentary special for BBC4, CBC and ARTE that explores humankind’s historic relationship with wolves.

The 1 x 60-minute series tell the story of a lone wolf living against the odds and its incredible bond with one woman – wildlife photographer Cheryl Alexander.

Martin Williams, CEO and creative director of Talesmith, said: “Takaya: Lone Wolf will provide viewers with an inspirational story of one animal’s resilience, survival, and adaptability.
