The Brazilian version of Supermax and Jailers will land in the US, UK, Ireland, Germany, Austria, and Switzerland thanks to premium VOD platforms Sundance Now and Shudder, respectively.
Globo announced a deal with AMC Networks that will see two of its dramas available for viewers in the US, UK, Ireland, Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
Thus, Jailers (originally titled Carcereiros) and the Brazilian version of Supermax will reach premium streaming services Sundance Now and Shudder, respectively. They will be made available with their original Portuguese audio and subtitles in local languages.
"This deal demonstrates the constant quality of the series produced in recent years, with a great production value, current and relevant issues, and an enormous potential to attract audiences from different countries and platforms," said Raphael Corrêa Netto, executive director of International Business at Globo.
AMC Networks owns and manages several of the most popular and award-winning TV and film brands, including major pay-tv networks and premium VOD streaming services, including Sundance Now and Shudder.
Sundance Now, which will offer Jailers, also offers original and exclusive dramas, comedies and films of all genres, including documentary feature films in foreign languages.
Shudder, which will offer Supermax (Brazilian version), is the world's largest premium streaming service for thrillers, suspense and horror shows.
Jailers, honored by MIPDrama Screenings' Grand Jury during Miptv 2017, is a co-production between Gullane Filmes and Spray Filmes. With a second season already underway, the series represents in an extremely realistic way the dilemmas and conflicts faced by prison workers.
The show is written by Fernando Bonassi, Marçal Aquino and Denisson Ramalho, together with Marcelo Starobinas. It is inspired by the work of Drauzio Varella and boasts Jose Eduardo Belmonte as general director.
On its end, the Brazilian version of Supermax is a thriller about the participants of a fictional reality show who compete for a one million dollars prize while they are locked in a maximum security prison isolated in the middle of the Amazon jungle.
The basic plot of the series, created by José Alvarenga Jr., Marçal Aquino and Fernando Bonassi, and directed by José Alvarenga Jr., inspired an international version under the same name, co-produced between Globo and Oficina Burman, Mediaset (Spain), TV Azteca (Mexico) and TVP (Argentina), in a strategic alliance with Teledoce (Uruguay).
To be the link between the main players in the entertainment industry is not an easy task. It means creating a platform aimed at a group of highly informed and demanding professionals. But with great effort and commitment, we did it.
