Amazon announced this week four new original productions for Brazil, some of which are already in the process of filming, and others whose production will start in 2020. Apart from the already announced ‘Tudo or Nada: Seleção Brasileira‘ and ‘Soltos em Floripa’, the platform will also produce the criminal action thriller ‘DOM’, the drama ‘September’ – about a transgender singer – and ‘L.OV3, which will focus on family relationships. All titles announced are provisional.
A project is also planned with singer Marcelo D2, even without a name, produced by Prodigo Films. The plot will have hip hop as a backdrop to tell stories of mothers in favelas and the problems they face day by day. All productions will be available exclusively on Amazon Prime Video Brazil and in more than 200 countries and territories.
Inspired on real events, “DOM” focuses on Victor, a military intelligence agent who faced the war on drugs and, after years, sees his own son, Pedro, succumb to addiction. While Victor notices himself that Pedro’s life declines with cocaine addiction, he discovers another side of his son’s life, which becomes one of the most wanted criminals in Rio de Janeiro. The series is in production stage and will make its debut in 2020.
‘Septiembre’, on the other hand, tells the story of a trans woman who has her newly discovered independence affected by the arrival of a son she had with another woman seven years ago. The filming of the project will begin next year. In addition, L.OV3 will tell the story of Ana, Sofia and Beto, three brothers who explore different ways of living their relationships, love and intimacy after the end of their parents’ marriage to celebrate their 30 years in marriage. The production of this series will also begin next year.
