Netflix has ordered “Maschi Veri” from Banijay’s Italian drama house Grøenlandia. The show, written by Furio Andreotti, Giulia Calenda and Ugo Ripamonti, with Groenlandia’s Matteo Rovere producing and Matteo Oleotto and Letizia Lamartire directing, is slated for a 2025 launch.

The eight-part comedy series follows four alpha male friends (Maurizio Lastrico, Matteo Martari, Francesco Montanari and Pietro Sermonti) in their forties find themselves facing their own prejudices and the paradigms of toxic masculinity in a world that is moving towards social and gender equality. Without losing themselves, they are forced to rediscover their place in society and their relationships. Thony, Sarah Felberbaum, Laura Adriani, Alice Lupparelli, Corrado Fortuna and Nicole Grimaudo complete the cast.

For Netflix, which has had an office in Rome since 2022, the series is its latest out of Italy that explores contemporary masculinity. It comes after Rocco Siffredi drama “Supersex”. Meanwhile, Grøenlandia is behind the feature film director Sydney Sibilia’s first TV drama series, “Someone Killed Spiderman – Accidentally Famous”, which is about the Italian musical duo 883 and for Sky Italia, and “Antonia”, the Fleabag-style Prime Video comedy-drama starring Chiara Martegiani and Valerio Mastandrea.
