DESCRIPTION:
(from Netflix's press release, November 2017) Netflix, the world's leading internet entertainment service, today announced production of a new Brazilian original series, Coisa Mais Linda, slated to begin filming in 2018. Set in the late 1950s and early 1960s during the birth and cultural revolution of Bossa Nova in Rio de Janeiro, the series is a romantic period drama that brings a golden era in the country's history to the forefront. "We're eager to continue investing in the incredible storytelling Brazil has to offer, and our partners at Prodigo Films have captured just that with Coisa Mais Linda," said Erik Barmack, Netflix VP of International Original Content. "Apart from being set to a vibrant time in Brazilian culture, the series tells a broader story about self-discovery, the pursuit of dreams and the emancipation of women that will be incredibly relevant to our audiences both in Brazil and globally." Coisa Mais Linda follows Maria Luiza, a conservative, dutiful woman who has always depended on her father, Ademar, and her husband, Pedro. When Pedro disappears, she must travel from São Paulo to Rio, where her husband had planned to open a fancy restaurant. Against her better judgment --and to the chagrin of her strict father-- Maria Luiza decides to stay in Rio and dedicate herself to turning Pedro's property into a Bossa Nova club. It's this decision that marks the start of a passion-driven transformation in Maria Luiza, one that is influenced by liberal and feminist new friends, as well as a renewed chance at love.
