Netflix announces A Sogra que te Pariu, it's first Brazilian multi-camera sitcom, starred by Rodrigo Sant'anna

Spending 24 hours a day with your whole family is already tough. Now imagine if the pandemic threw another challenge your way: your mother-in-law shows up at your house, overflowing suitcases and all. Did that get a nervous laugh out of you? Because it's a lot! Netflix's first Brazilian multi-camera sitcom, A Sogra Que Te Pariu depicts hilarious scenes from a family whose life in lockdown is thrown for a loop when their mother-in-law arrives. The show was created by, and stars, none other than Rodrigo Sant'Anna.

When the pandemic starts, Dona Isadir (Rodrigo Sant'Anna) doesn't think twice about renting out her apartment in Cachambi, in the North Zone of Rio de Janeiro, so she can be closer to her family. She decides - unilaterally and without warning - to move into the mansion owned by her son Carlos (Rafael Zulu) in Barra da Tijuca, much to the dismay of her daughter-in-law, Alice (Lidi Lisboa). Her grandchildren, Jonas and Márcia (Pedro Ottoni and Bárbara Sut) are caught in the crossfire, while the family's longtime employee, Marinez (Daniela Fontan), has a front-row seat to the fireworks. And we haven't even mentioned the parties and cookouts with old friends from Cachambi, namely Fátima (Solange Teixeira) and Cezinha (Ney Lima).

"I'm always inspired by my personal experiences for fiction. This mother-in-law is the personification of my mother and grandmother, who came to stay during quarantine with me and my husband. Then, suddenly, we live exactly the invasion of privacy that A Mother-in-law Que Te Pariu portrays - and laughing at it! As in fiction, my family is made up of black people from the suburbs. And this story is from the whole of Brazil, from anyone who, with the whole family at home or not, goes identify and have fun with situations that only a mother-in-law could provide", comments Rodrigo Sant'Anna.

Produced by Os Suburbanos, A Sogra que te Pariu is directed by Alex Cabral. The sitcom will be released in 2022, only on Netflix.

About Os Suburbanos

Created in 2006 to carry out the play that gave rise to the production company's name, Os Suburbanos took over in 2019 the production of the sitcom Tô de Graça and other works for cinema, TV and now for Netflix. By giving prominence to characters who almost always occupy peripheral roles in the plots and highlighting the conflicts of the suburban universe, Os Suburbanos has been seeking to contribute to the diversity of voices and perspectives in the entertainment market.
