Created by psychiatrist Contardo Calligaris, the Brazilian series Psi leads HBO Latin America’s MIPTV programming slate for 2019.
Entering into its fourth season this year, the drama examines instances of paranoia—all of which are based on real-life cases Calligaris has encountered—with five narratives developing through the ten episodes. Also on HBO Latin America’s slate is The Bronze Garden, which is back for its sophomore run with a new storyline written by Gustavo Malajovich, the author of the book that inspired the first season.
The Secret Life of Couples returns for a second season as well, as “politics, sex and power come together in this intriguing series created by Bruna Lombardi and Kim Riccelli,” says Xavier Aristimuño, the company’s VP of licensing. The new season focuses on the world of hackers and opens with an investigation into the death of one of the first season’s characters.
Aristimuño adds: “HBO Latin America content has always been unique, telling universal stories in locally relevant settings.”
