The Guardian features Dating Dalí as one of the series to watch this week among new releases from Netflix and BBC:
Dating Dalí. An endearing webseries (which continues in a novel), this Spanish production recently netted an award at Paris’s Series Mania festival, where the jury was headed by Sopranos creator David Chase. The premise? Salvador Dalí winds up in a world that’s even more surreal than his imagination: the 21st century. But what will the moustachioed one make of modern courtship?
Variety magazine features our award at the Séries Mania Festival:
The Webseries Award was nabbed by “Dating Dali”, a Spanish romantic comedy web-series-come-novel with Dali, just about to make “L’Age d’Or” with Buñuel, time traveling to the 21st century. Alonso Laporta directs; Laporta and Gon Alonso produce.

Web Séries Mag from the French newspaper Libération talks about Dating Dalí while reviewing the official selection at Bilbao Web Fest:
Dating Dali est le genre de websérie qui vous attire tout de suite avec son pitch. Ici, on nous promet d’expédier un jeune Salvador Dali à notre époque et de confronter son surréalisme à notre – dure – réalité. En gros, c’est presque Marty McFly avec une drôle de moustache et une canne à pommeau.
Dali réussira t’il à inverser le sort qui l’empêche de vivre sa vraie vie, supportera t’il le surréalisme de bazar de son compagnon et parviendra t’il à se faire aimer?
Les épisodes sont très bien écrits et réalisés par Alonso Laporta et Gon Alonso campe un Dali à peine forcé, toujours amusant.
