Globo will hold this Thursday, November 16, a special exhibition of Under Pressure at MIP Cancun 2017. A co-production with Conspiração Filmes, the series is extremely innovative and realistic and will have a screening during the trade show in Conference Room B at 8am.
The 9-episode series, which premiered on the international market in Cannes, during the MIPCOM 2017, and won critical acclaim at the Toronto International Film Festival in Canada, now promises to make an impression on the Hispanic and Latin American markets.
Under Pressure’ portrays in a high-voltage story the daily routine of a group of doctors who need to overcome numerous adversities to keep patients alive in a hospital with scarce resources, located in Rio de Janeiro suburbs.
This high-tension environment is the backdrop for an unlikely relationship between the skeptic Dr. Evandro (Julio Andrade, Above Justice) and the religious and efficient Dr. Carolina (Marjorie Estiano, Dangerous Liaisons). The two are not only work partners, but also share a passion for saving lives, constantly juggling the hardships of work and their own personal conflicts in order to cope with their chaotic routine. During the exhibition in Brazil, it experienced great success with an average audience of 40.2 million views per episode — 44 million in the premiere alone.
Directed by Andrucha Waddington and Mini Kerti, Under Pressure is a spin-off of Andrucha Waddington’s feature film with the same name, co-produced by Globo and Conspiração Filmes. Created by Luiz Noronha, Claudio Torres and Renato Fagundes, based on an original idea by Mini Kerti, the series is loosely inspired by the book Sob Pressão – A rotina de guerra de um médico brasileiro [Under Pressure – A Brazilian doctor's war routine], by Marcio Maranhão. The series is authored by Jorge Furtado, who co-writes the episodes with Lucas Paraizo, Antonio Prata and Marcio Alemão, with Marcio Maranhão’s medical consulting.
