“Rescue: The Story of The Man Who Found My Missing Cat” hits Netflix on December 13, 2018
“R.I.P. Mr. Man.”
The Netflix original series about a rescue in which a family loses a pet cat and moves to a remote location is set to hit the streaming service on Dec. 13.
“It’s a very emotional episode,” said Netflix President Mark Hudis.
“I think people who watch it will be drawn into it.”
I.G.T. is the title of the show, which tells the story of a father and his family who move to a new home, only to find their dog is missing.
After searching the area for months, the family eventually find the dog.
“R,” in this case, means the cat.
In the series, the cat is rescued and the family adopts it as a pet.
Hudis said the show’s title was inspired by the movie “Rochester,” in which the same family finds their missing cat and rescues him, only for the cat to be found and killed by a feral cat.
“We’ve been really happy to have it [on Netflix],” Hudis told EW.
“There are a lot of great movies on the service, so we wanted to take advantage of that.
We didn’t want it to be too much of a spoiler.”
“The Man Who Lost His Cat” is set for release in the U.S. on December 15.
Hudes also revealed that the series will be filmed in a “really unique location” and will “play out like a documentary.”
“It was really cool to have someone who has worked with us, Mark Hudi, to direct it,” Hudis added.
“The location was really important to us and I’m really proud of the work that Mark Hudics and his team did.”
“This show is something we can’t wait to tell,” Huds added.
