Porta Dos Fundos announced the production of its first animated Christmas special, “Mean Boys,” part of the portfolio of original content being created for the streaming platform Paramount+. The special will be a co-production with Brazilian animation studio Estricnina to premiere exclusively on Paramount+ later this year.
“Mean Boys” will give the audience a glimpse of Jesus’ life before he was Christ, arriving at a new high school and, with the help of his friend Lázaro, trying to fit in. The program will follow the woes and misadventures of a group of friends as they navigate life in high school and will undoubtedly push boundaries as they show just how mean boys can be.
"We always wanted to make an animation. This pandemic turned our desire into a necessity. After all, drawing can't transmit a virus," commented Fábio Porchat, Co-Founder and Screenwriter at Porta Dos Fundos.
This Paramount+ Original adds to the mountain of entertainment recently added the platform, which includes content such as Mark Wahlberg's new movie “Infinite”; Spanish series “Parot”; the latest season of the “iCarly” reboot; Ricardo Arjona's streaming concert “Hecho a la Antigua”; new seasons of “The Handmaid's Tale” and “Acapulco Shore”; and the highly anticipated “Manos Arriba Chef”.
