Filming has not started yet, but 'The route' it is already the Serie most anticipated of 2022, at least, in Valencia. This production, which will tell the story of a group of friends during 'La ruta del bacalao' in Valencia, already has actors in its distribution. Ricardo Gómez ('Tell me how it happened'), Àlex Monner ('Red bracelets'), Elísabet Casanovas ('Merlí'), Claudia Salas ('Elite') and Guillem Barbosa ('I'm looking for her') They will be part of the main cast of this series, produced by Rodrigo Sorogoyen's audiovisual company, Caballo Films.
The project was already announced in 2020 with the support of Atresmedia. The Valencian filmmaker Borja Soler will be the one who gets behind the camera, although he also appears as a creator along with Roberto Martín Maiztegui.
The cast has been chosen with precision, since the proper names that make it up belong to a new generation of actors who are stomping on the Spanish indie scene. For example, Ricardo Gomez It has been a long time since he got rid of the shadow of Carlitos, the tender character from the series 'Cuéntame'. In recent years he has carried out dramatic and suspenseful roles, in films such as' The mud '(2021),' The substitute '(2121),' Mia and Moi '(2021) and is awaiting the premiere of' The house entre los cacti ', with Ariadna Gil or Daniel Grao.
Àlex MonnerInstead, he was born as a director's fetish actor of the 90s generation and dazzled audiences with his starring role in the series "Red Bracelets." He was nominated in the Goya for 'Wild Children' (2021), by Patricia Ferreira and earned the respect of the actors' guild for his work in 'The next skin' (2016), alongside Emma Suárez.
On the other hand, Claudia Salas is part of the cast of 'Elite' and Elisabet Casanovas He has just premiered 'Chavalas', a comedy starring alongside Vicky Then or Carolina Yuste.
The filming of "La Ruta" will take place at the beginning of this year and will last until spring. It will take place mainly in the towns of the Ribera Baixa, where the largest number of discotheques adhering to this cultural phenomenon congregated.
Atresmedia has given more details about the synopsis of the series in the last week: "'La Ruta' tells of the more than ten years that Valencia spent dancing; years that we all want to live and that only some can remember. 30 kilometers. 12 years. 7 discos. 5 friends. Let no one stop dancing. 'La Ruta' is the journey of a group of friends from El Perelló, from their farewell on a crowded Destroy Route, in 1993, until the day they entered Barraca for the first time, in 1981, when both they and "the party" they still retained their innocence. 'La Ruta' tells of the more than ten years that Valencia spent dancing, some years that we would all like to live and that only some can remember ".
