Raphael Corrêa Netto to Lead Globo’s International Arm


SÃO PAULO: Raphael Corrêa Netto is taking over Globo’s international business division as Ricardo Scalamandré, the company’s international business director, begins his retirement transition process.

Corrêa Neto has been with Globo’s international business division for more than 15 years. His new duties include negotiating international shows and content; overseeing Globo’s network operation and business model abroad; forging new partnerships and developing international co-productions.

Willy Haas, Globo’s business director, remarked: “Ricardo Scalamandré has been ahead of Globo’s strategy for the international market over the past few years, including the launch of our very first channel abroad, the expansion of the dramaturgy and sports licensing process, and the establishment of partnerships for international productions. His invaluable contribution and expertise have helped us develop the international television market, and our doors will always be open for new partnership projects in the future.”

On January 19, Corrêa Neto will be participating in a NATPE panel titled “Content Twists in Latin America,” in which he will discuss the challenges of producing a Spanish version of Supermax for the international market. At the event, Globo will be promoting the telenovelas Time After Time, Rising Sun (working title), Total Dreamer, Burning Hearts, Wounded Past and Lady Revolution, as well as the miniseries Above Justice and Nothing Remains the Same.
