London-based factual prodco Talesmith has teamed with global content producer-distributor Cineflix and Wild Wolf Media to co-produce a one-off documentary special set to explore humankind’s historic relationship with wolves.

Tentatively titled Takaya: Lone Wolf, the hour-long film documents the story of a wolf’s life of quiet isolation on a remote island archipelago off the coast of British Columbia, Canada – existing entirely on a marine diet – and its unique bond with wildlife photographer Cheryl Alexander.

Takaya: Lone Wolf is produced for British pubcaster BBC, Canadian pubcaster CBC and Franco-German free-to-air network ARTE. The documentary is executive produced by Martin Williams for Talesmith, André Barro for Cineflix, and Gaby Bastyra.

Cineflix Rights has exclusive worldwide distribution rights.

Takaya: Lone Wolf will provide viewers with an inspirational story of one animal’s resilience, survival, and adaptability,” said Williams, CEO and creative director of Talesmith, in a statement. “But it’s also a story of how people interact with wolves, both through Cheryl’s extraordinary relationship but more widely about how humans can co-exist with an animal perceived by some as a dangerous threat.”

“We’re expanding our co-production business at Cineflix Media and Takaya: Lone Wolf is a great example of an exciting partnership that combines expertise and resources to bring more engaging content to viewers worldwide,” added Cineflix executive producer André Barro.
