Brazilian folklore stories will be coming to the small screen in an upcoming Netflix original series.
Invisible City has begun production in Brazil. This series will be director Carlos Saldanha’s Netflix debut. Saldanha’s first live-action series will “take Brazilian folklore stories to the world under a contemporary perspective.”
Here is the synopsis from a media release:
After finding a strange dead animal on a beach in Rio de Janeiro, the policeman engages in a secret murder investigation and finds himself in the middle of a battle between two worlds – ours, as we know it, and another inhabited by mythical entities, invisible to humans.
The cast includes Marco Pigossi as a detective and Alessandra Negrini as the owner of a nightclub. Caito Ortiz, Maresa Pullman, and Marco Anton are the executive producers with Mirna Nogueira as the head writer.
Invisible City will be available only on Netflix in 2020.
