Globo And Armoza In Dramatic Partnership
Leading Brazilian broadcaster Globosat has now commissioned the finished series of two dramas, Eclipse and Refuge, from Armoza Formats. The finished tapes are comprised of the first two seasons of each series, totaling 84 episodes. Eclipse will begin airing on their GNT channel in September 2018.
Originally aired on Canada’s TVA, the two dramas recently won Silver World Medals in the Drama category at the New York Festivals World’s Best TV and Films 2018.
A captivating and emotional drama, Eclipse (24 x 60’), produced by Duo Productions, takes us on the journey of a family trying to recover from a devastating loss. Tortured by guilt and responsibility after the death of her young son, Anne-Sophie leaves her home and family with nothing but the clothes on her back and the hope of starting a new life to escape her grief. Her husband Bernard is left behind to pick up the pieces, taking charge of their daughter and the family business. As Anne-Sophie and Bernard try to uncover who is really to blame for the tragic event, the tension between them grows with each passing day. Is the loss of their son too shattering or is there still hope for them to overcome?
Produced by Amalga, Refuge (48 x 60’) is the gripping drama about a woman who is forced to go back to the very place she spent a lifetime running from. Years after abandoning her daughter and leaving her hometown, Brigitte returns for her daughter’s wedding. What was supposed to be a weekend of celebration, turns into a mysterious murder case that reveals long-hidden secrets. The incident shakes the small community to its core, including the youth center for troubled teens, which becomes a key place in the investigation. While Brigitte attempts to win back her daughter and uncover the truth behind what happened, she must confront the past that she worked so hard to escape.
Armoza Formats is distributing the series both as finished tapes and as formats.
Ana Carolina Lima, Programming & Acquisitions Director of GNT, “We are excited to be bringing these two series to our VOD platform. Both dramas have a profile that will perfectly match with our audience.”
Avi Armoza, CEO of Armoza Formats, “‘Eclipse’ and ‘Refuge’ are two incredibly moving dramas, both with strong female characters at their heart. We believe that they will resonate with Globosat’s viewers and are thrilled to be working with them to bring these dramatic and emotional shows to Brazil.”
