The filming of “The Path,” Globo’s new primetime telenovela, has already begun in Portugal. The show, which takes place mostly in Rio de Janeiro, but it is also centered in Maranhão and Portugal, will be launched to the international market in 2023.
In the plot, Rodrigo Lombardi is Moretti, a businessman who works in the civil construction industry and lives in the Portuguese capital. Alexandre Nero is back together with Giovanna Antonelli as Stênio and Helô, the successful characters from “Brave Woman,” also written by Glória Perez. Lucy Alves, Chay Suede, Rômulo Estrela, Drica Moraes, Cassia Kis, and Vanessa Giácomo are also part of the cast.
“Portugal is certainly one of the most interesting places in Europe and has developed nicely. We filmed in the busiest and most iconic places in Lisbon. We went to Óbidos, a beautiful and medieval place, and we went to a winery in historic building from Setúbal,” said the director, Mauro Mendonça Filho, who was also responsible for directing “Hidden Truths.”
“Globo invests in content that is capable of traveling and connecting with the audience from several countries, and ‘The Path’ is a reflex of this. It is a telenovela written by an author who is already well-known in the international market, and with successful actors from renowned productions, in addition to the high technical quality, which is part of Globo’s production,” added Angela Colla, Head of International Sales at Globo.
