From this Thursday (4), the streaming platform of Paramount + inaugurates a new phase in Brazil. Initially, anyone who wanted to have access to their content could purchase one of the channels available within Amazon Prime Video.
However, things are becoming more independent now and several new features have been added to your catalog.
Belonging to ViacomCBS, in addition to studio designs and originals from the discontinued CBS All Access, streaming also offers its subscribers productions from CBS, Comedy Central, Showtime, MTV and Nickelodeon.
Check out some of the unpublished series that make it to the Paramount + catalog in Brazil:
The Good Lord Bird
Originally shown by Showtime, the miniseries brings actor Ethan Hawke to the fore in a dense narrative full of fascinating dialogues. Not for nothing, it was considered as one of the best productions launched in 2020 by several critics. The plot approaches, from the point of view of an enslaved boy, a family of abolitionist soldiers fighting slavery in Kansas.
Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years
Original streaming production, this new reinterpretation of the design Sponge Bob, from Nickelodeon, bets on the fun development of a notorious holiday camp. However, all characters are reimagined at a new age, precisely to reach an even younger target audience.
Another series originally broadcast by Showtime. Your Honor is based directly on Israeli production Kvodo, launched in 2017.
Oscar nominee Bryan Cranston, who plays a highly respected judge in his field and needs to deal with the attitudes of a completely timely child, is the star of the narrative. To protect him, his morals are put to the test when he indulges in a game of lies and manipulation.
Featuring Don Cheadle, Andrew Rannells and Regina Hall in the main cast, the series is set on the infamous date that became known as Black Monday, on October 19, 1987. On that occasion, the Wall Street stock exchange experienced one of its worst moments in contemporary history.
In this sense, the plot, shown in two seasons, follows the group that caused the breakdown of one of the largest financial systems in the world with all its tricks and contacts.
Escape at Dannemora
Focusing on another real story, Escape at Dannemora has a strong cast and follows the lives of three different characters who are related in some way to the escape from Dannemora prison, a fact that occurred in 2015.
David Sweat (Paul Dano) is a police officer who was convicted of murder and serving his sentence on the spot, while Richard Matt (Benicio del Toro) wants to escape at all costs, while Tilly Mitchell (played by Patricia Arquette) is sexually involved with both.
Two Weeks to Live
Sky One’s original production features Maisie Williams, game of Thrones, and Sian Clifford, of Fleabag, as protagonists. The plot features a young woman growing up isolated from the world, being supervised by her mother after her father dies.
However, when she turns 21 years old, she decides to venture on a very intriguing mission full of possible dangers. The series debuted in September 2020 and ran over six rather unpredictable episodes.
Starring Tim Meadows, Patrick Brammall, Will Ferrell and Mark Berry, the series follows the lives of two policemen who end up getting involved, in a somewhat accidental way, with a drug cartel. Gradually, other characters also see themselves in the middle of the initial saga and everyone needs to deal with the consequences.
The Comey Rule
This series also draws on real life events to compose its plot and brings former President Donald Trump (Brendan Gleeson), along with former FBI director James Comey (Jeff Daniels) to the spotlight. The narrative bets on the development of the dubious personalities of its protagonists, showing how they behave in the face of certain adversities.
Among them, there is the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s e-mails, in addition to highlighting a good part of the Trump administration’s political games during her first months as president.
Another original streaming production, this time, inspired by the story of a very intriguing real-life figure. In Strange Angelin Los Angeles in the 1930s, viewers meet Jack Parsons, an ambitious worker who spurred research on space rocket launches.
However, his life is surrounded by controversy, as the character would have become a disciple of Aleister Crowley, an influential British occultist, responsible for creating a sinister doctrine.
City on a Hill
Closing the list of news from Paramount +, there is the series City on a Hillstarring Kevin Bacon, Aldis Hodge and Jonathan Tucker. Originally shown by Showtime in two seasons, the production is inspired by a fact that became known as “Boston Miracle”.
To neutralize a family specializing in devastating crimes, an unusual pair of African-American lawyers and an FBI veteran team up to carry out an investigation that would change the region’s infamous criminal justice system.
