Globo will hold a special exhibition of ‘Under Pressure’ at MIP Cancun 2017. A co-production with Conspiração Filmes, the series is extremely innovative and realistic, and will have a screening during the trade show in Conference Room B, on November 16, at 8 a.m. The 9-episode series, which premiered on the international market in Cannes, during the MIPCOM 2017, and won critical acclaim at the Toronto International Film Festival in Canada, now promises to make an impression on the Hispanic and Latin-American markets.
Available in 4K, the series is part of the new breed of series introduced by Globo to the international market. During exhibition in Brazil, it experienced great success with an average audience of 40.2 million views per episode — 44 million in the premiere alone. These numbers reflect the company’s investment in new forms of creation, production and distribution, ensuring a consistent series catalog to the international market. In addition to ‘Under Pressure’, there are other stories available, such as ‘Above Justice’, which competes in two International Emmy Awards categories in 2017, ‘Jailers’, ‘Supermax’, ‘Merciless’, and ‘Dangerous Liaisons’.
