PEDRO MORELLI'S "THE FACTION" IS THE NEW NETFLIX BRAZILIAN ORIGINAL SERIES

São Paulo, July 11th, 2018 - Netflix, the world's leading internet entertainment service, will bring the eight-episode series The Faction to members worldwide in 2019.

Set in the 90s the thriller will follow the story of Cristina, an honest and dedicated lawyer that finds that her missing brother has been jailed for years and is a leader of an ascendant criminal faction. Coerced by the police, she is forced to become an informant and work against her brother. But as Cristina infiltrates the faction, she begins to question her own values about law and justice and comes into contact with a dark side of herself she did not imagine she had.

"What drew us to The Faction is that through the perspective of Cristina the series invites the audience to explore the inhospitable prison universe of São Paulo of the 90s through an electrifying dramatic thriller.", said Erik Barmack, Vice President, Original Content for Netflix. "Cristina's trajectory of empowerment and corruption is intertwined with that of the faction and will appeal to Netflix members around the globe."

"We are thrilled to be producing for Netflix a show about such a relevant issue. In a country where people have grown used to appalling levels of violence, The Faction addresses the contradictory Brazilian reality as a way of better understanding the origin of the problem. At the same time, this is a suspenseful and high voltage thriller that will get the audience hooked", says showrunner Pedro Morelli, from O2 Films.

An original series produced by O2 Fimes for Netflix, The Faction will feature eight episodes in its first season. The series was created by Pedro Morelli, who will also direct. The show was written by Felipe Sant'Angelo, Iris Junges, Leonardo Lev, Mirna Nogueira and Francine Barbosa and produced by Andrea Barata Ribeiro and Bel Berlinck.
