Dois Irmãos and Cidade dos Homens ranked among the most commented premieres in Latin America by social media users, according to data from The Wit.
January was a month to remember for Globo as two of its premiering series won over social media users.
According to data from The Wit, which through the Social Wit List ranks the top ten most commented premieres in social media, Dois Irmãos and Cidade dos Homens ranked among the most commented premieres in Latin America.
With a fast-paced story line, Dois Irmãos hit fourth place on the list, totaling approximately 21,000 comments during its debut month.
Based on the famous novel by Milton Hatoum, a writer from the state of Amazonas, the show tells the story of a Lebanese immigrant family shaken by the rivalry between the twin brothers Omar and Yaqub.
Set in the city of Manaus, northern Brazil, the series features a star-studded cast including Cauã Reymond, Juliana Paes, Maria Fernanda Cândido, Emilio Orciollo Netto, Ary Fontoura and Viviane Pasmanter.
On the other hand, Cidade dos Homens spurred 11,000 comments, reaching eighth place in the ranking.
Cidade dos Homens features new chapters in the story of Laranjinha and Acerola, two friends who live in a poor community in Rio de Janeiro after the first season was shown 12 years ago.
However, this is not the first time Globo premieres are featured on The Wit’s charts.
The series Above Justice hit second place among Latin American productions and third place among world premieres. Aired in Brazil in August 2016, it spanned about 161,000 online comments, featuring hashtags like #Brilliant and #GreatConcept.
Another highlight was the telenovela Wounded Past, which gathered 69,000 comments in its debut month, hitting first place among Latin American releases in October 2016.
