MUMBAI: The Globo series ‘Under Pressure’ will make its international debut during the 42nd edition of the Toronto International Film Festival – a renowned film festival held between September 7 and 17 in Toronto, Canada. The first two episodes will be aired at the third edition of Primetime – part of the festival dedicated to international TV productions from several countries, such as Germany, U.S., Brazil and Canada. The event will also feature the series’ art director, Andrucha Waddington, and director Mini Kerti, in addition to Lucas Paraizo, one of the screenwriters.

Featured as one of Globo’s highlights for the next edition of MIPCOM, ‘Under Pressure’ is an authentic Brazilian series that portrays the dramas and conflicts in the daily lives of a medical staff working in a precarious hospital in the suburbs of Rio de Janeiro. Aired in Brazil since July 25, in Globo’s late prime time, the series is a great hit with audiences, reaching an average of more than 38 million viewers per episode. The plot has also captured online audiences and topped the Social Wit List in July, as one of the most mentioned Latin American premieres on social media, and the third among world productions that premiered this month.

A co-production between Globo and Conspiração Filmes, Jorge Furtado’s series created by Luiz Noronha, Claudio Torres and Renato Fagundes, based on an original idea by Mini Kerti, who co-writes episodes with Lucas Paraizo, Antonio Prata and Marcio Alemão, the series draws inspiration from the feature film by Andrucha Waddington with the same title. ‘Under Pressure’ shows the everyday life of doctors who must face the harsh reality of a chaotic environment and struggle just to keep patients alive. Intensity is part of the innovative production, which featured recordings made in deactivated areas of a public hospital, guaranteeing even more realism to the story. Real cases researched by Jorge Furtado and the team of screenwriters in the public health system of the city of Rio de Janeiro were the inspiration to such amazing story lines, touching upon extremely relevant social issues, such as abuse, suicide, Aids, and abandonment. The production is also supervised by consulting physician Marcio Maranhão, author of the book “Sob Pressão – A rotina de guerra de um médico brasileiro” (Under Pressure – A Brazilian doctor’s war routine, in a loose translation), which inspired the feature film and the series, ensuring the accuracy of technical and medical elements.

By featuring ‘Under Pressure’ at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival, Globo reinforces its long-standing expertise as a major producer of multiplatform content, developing different formats that leverage its creation, production and distribution structure, ultimately expanding its coverage in both the domestic and foreign markets. The Brazilian network has been attending renowned film festivals around the world, such as the recent MIPDrama Screenings, in France, where the series ‘Jailers’ was awarded; Berlinale 2017, in Germany; the 20th Punta del Este international film festival, in Uruguay; the 37th edition of Fantasporto, in Portugal; and the 8th edition of the Series Mania, in France.
