On Thursday, the production company Parafernalha released the trailer for the series “A Toca”, the first Brazilian on Netflix, with its premiere scheduled for tomorrow. The production, led by vlogger Felipe Neto, inspired by “The Office” and will be a mix between documentary and fiction in which the company’s employees interpret characters of themselves.
In an interview withGlobe, Neto promises to approach Brazilian themes with creative freedom. “I didn’t even have to submit the synopses of Netflix episodes. That was the most exciting, because in all the places where I worked that were not my channel, I had a series of impositions and restrictions. In one of the episodes of ‘A Toque’, one of the characters tells another, from the Northeast, that he will love Rio because it has water and food here. This does not sound offensive because he is portrayed as an imbecile who does not understand anything. This went smoothly, ”he told the newspaper.
Despite this, the vlogger said that he intends to manage the critical tone that is peculiar to him. “In the series people will be able to see Felipe Neto who is the leader of this producer: a bit, Harry Potter fan, who makes a lot of clowning and has a lot of difficulty imposing himself as a boss”, he comments.
Unlike other Netflix original series, the program will only be available in Brazil.
