From Country Music to Kisses, Netflix Announces New Brazilian Unscripted Productions and Its Team of Hosts

São Paulo, February 2nd, 2021. Continuing the global success of reality shows and docuseries, Netflix reveals, on Tuesday, several news regarding its unscripted Brazilian production. A reality for entrepreneurs, and É o Amor, starring Zezé di Camargo and Wanessa, will join the already announced Queer Eye Brasil, Too Hot To Handle: Brazil and Love Is Blind: Brazil. The five productions are scheduled to premiere in 2021. 

With the development of these shows, Netflix reinforces its commitment to offering a diverse original programming for reality TV and docuseries fans, especially Brazilians. "From dating shows to makeover divas and ambitious entrepreneurs, we believe that we can meet the most varied preferences and moods of our subscribers”, says Francisco Ramos, Vice President of Originals for Latin America.

Highly expected by the fans, the Brazilian version of Love is Blind will be hosted by a couple who also met around cameras: Camila Queiroz and Klebber Toledo will show if love is really blind. “It’s thrilling to watch these singles who want to be loved for what they truly are. Imagine falling for and marrying someone you’ve never seen before?”, points Klebber. For Camila, the experience of presenting the reality has been fascinating: “Filming has already started, through EndemolShine Brasil, and I am very attentive to it, which is an environment that leaves no doubt about the emotional connections they are building.”

Also in the dating/flirting genre, Too Hot To Handle: Brazil has been filmed by Fremantle and is a little more spicy, challenging 14 Brazilian singles confined in a tropical paradise to deprive themselves of any and all physical contact for 40 days - from a simple kiss to a night of on bed together. In the end, they may even find true love.

However, love of father and daughter is very real between Zezé di Camargo and Wanessa, in the documentary series É o Amor, that will be filmed in the beautiful family farm in Goiás state. With friends and Brazilian artists, they talk about family ties and music, while opening the backstage of a family relationship celebrated throughout Brazil. Wanessa can't wait to show to fans her life with her father. "I'm flattered to share our family life on a platform like Netflix. I hope people have fun, be moved and stay with us! It will be an amazing experience and I am counting the days so you can see everything", she comments. Zezé di Camargo, on the other hand, had a film passing through his head when his son-in-law Marcus Buaiz told him about the project: "It's our story told from another perspective, taking the origin from me, from my story and with Wanessa by my side! We have a lot to tell, sing, join, talk about, create with this team from Netflix and Ventre Studio that has been with us for a few months. "

Changing from emotion to reason, an untitled reality show will be the best opportunity for four bold and creative entrepreneurs to develop themselves and "sell" their products to a specialized jury, in addition to 100 consumers. In this entrepreneurship game, held by Forest Productions, they will need to prove why their ideas deserve a chance with a good financial investment. 

Also in partnership with Floresta Produções, in Queer Eye Brasil, Fred Nicácio (well-being), Guto Requena (design), Rica Benozzati (style), Luca Scarpelli (culture) and Yohan Nicolas (beauty) will forever transform aspects of the lives of some men into the Brazilian version of the original American winner of seven Primetime Emmy Awards®.

"The launch of new content in Brazil boosts our partnership with the local creative community, both in the creation and in the production of new stories. In the meantime, our successful global originals will continue to have their spice and 100% Brazilians versions , connecting thousands of fans around the planet”, adds Elisa Chalfon, Non-Fiction Content Manager for Brazil.

In 2020, Tiger King became a worldwide phenomenon with over 64 million households accounts choosing to watch in the first four weeks after it premiered, while the first season of Too Hot to Handle raised the temperature in another 51 million households. For reality shows fans, the second season of The Circle US, Too Hot to Handle and Love is Blind have already been confirmed.
