GEO: Beyond the limit; what is it about?
With David Miralles directing and both Jorge Pérez Vega and Ignacio Corrales in production, the docuseries has 8 chapters. It was filmed in Guadalajara and tells how up to 100 agents try to get a position in the elite unit, which barely a dozen of them will be able to access. It should be noted that there is no room for fiction; everything that is shown is real and it was Inspector Pelayo himself, a recognized member of the National Police, who assured that the series is “an exercise in transparency” and that “everything we see in it is real.” To shoot the chapters of which it consists, the filming lasted seven months, even leading to 16-hour recordings in a single day of coexistence with the group.
What is the job of GEOs?
In essence, the Special Operations Group, founded in 1977 and part of the ATLAS Network together with the Special Intervention Unit of the Civil Guard, is dedicated to high-risk tasks that require special qualifications. Release of kidnapped people, search and capture of terrorist organizations, security of members of the Spanish diplomacy on visits abroad and neutralization of explosive devices are some of the delicate tasks they carry out.
