São Paulo, September 9, 2021 - The new Netflix Brazilian series, Back to 15, has just wrapped up production in Paris, France, where Maisa, Camila Queiroz, Caio Cabral and Breno Ferreira filmed the final scenes. Inspired by author Bruna Vieira’s book by the same name, the fun story about self-discovery and coming-of-age revolves around Anita, played by Maisa as a youth, and by Camila as an adult. At 15, she dreams of growing up fast to escape the small town of Imperatriz and travel the world, but once she’s 30, she finds that things aren’t exactly as she'd imagined.
When the adult Anita returns to her hometown for her sister’s wedding and a string of disasters unfold, she takes refuge in the room where she spent her adolescence. When she turns on her old computer, our main character is transported, as if by magic, to her first day of high school. That’s right—a 30-year-old brain stuck in the body of a girl of 15. Now she’s going to try to fix the lives of everyone around her—among them, her best friend Henrique (Caio Cabral), a nerd who has a secret crush on Anita, played as an adult by Breno Ferreira. However, each change made to the past impacts everyone’s future, and not always for the better.
Produced by Carolina Alckmin and Mayra Lucas of GLAZ Entretenimento and directed by Vivi Jundi and Dainara Toffoli, the series was adapted and scripted by Janaina Tokitaka. Renata Kochen, Alice Marcone and Bryan Ruffo also helped write the screenplay. Back to 15 is expected to premiere in 2022 with six episodes of 40 minutes each, promising laughs, surprises and plenty of emotion.
