Polish network TVN has acquired two miniseries from Brazil’s Globo TV International.
Xingu is the true story of the Villas Bôas brothers, Claudio, Orlando and Leonardo, who fought for the rights of Brazilian Indians and their culture. The four-part series, from O2 Filmes, is produced by director Fernando Meirelles.
Bald Mountain (aka Serra Pelada), also made up of four episodes, is about Juliano and Joaquim arriving in the Amazon forest filled with dreams and illusions, like many others before them. But their obsession with wealth and power ultimately becomes their downfall. Juliano becomes a gangster and Joaquim abandons his values and principles.
It is produced by Paranoid, and Lynx Films, and coproduced by Globo Filmes and Warner Bros. The director is Heitor Dhalia.
