09 de agosto de 2015
Netflix has announced its first Brazilian Netflix original series, 3%, which will start filming in early 2016 and will debut exclusively on Netflix later in the year. Produced by Boutique Filmes, the first season, will be directed by Cesar Charlone (City of God, Blindness), starring João Miguel (Estômago, Xingu, Felizes Para Sempre?) and Bianca Comparato (Avenida Brasil, Sete Vidas, Irmã Dulce). Written by Pedro Aguilera, 3% will be filmed in 4K. The series is a dramatic thriller that brings viewers into a world divided into progress and devastation. The once-in-a-lifetime chance to pass to the better side is through a cruel process where only 3% of the candidates succeed. "Ultimately, the series questions the dynamics of society that imposes constant selection processes we all have to go through, whether we like it or not", said director Cesar Charlone. Erik Barmack, VP of Independent and Local Content of Netflix, commented:"We look forward to working with such an acclaimed team for our first Netflix Original production entirely shot in Brazil. We are confident that this fascinating premise will be widely enjoyed by our members internationally".
