Netflix was launched in Brazil in 2011 and it seems like the online video streaming company is looking forward to grow its fanbase in Latin America by airing TV Series popular in countries at those location.
Despite only 20 percent of people using internet in Brazil, at speed of 500 kilobytes per second, Netflix looks to create some buzz in the footballing nation with plans of airing futuristic drama series ‘3%’ anytime soon.
Netflix has given out order for the series, which is also going to mark the first original production shot in Brazil. Directed by Cesar Charlone, a mastermind behind ‘City of God’, the series is set to start production by early next year and might debut on Netflix later in the year.
3%, a thriller drama series revolves around the progress and devastation of people, where they’re given chances but only 3% of them succeed.
When asked about the drama series, Charlone said-“Ultimately, the series questions the dynamics of society that imposes constant selection processes we all have to go through, whether we like it or not.”
Netflix has also been praised for moving local production in-house by the executive producer Tiago Mello.
“Netflix(‘s) willingness to invest in Brazilian content, local talent and creative storytelling is key for our growth as a industry,” Mello said.

3% on Netflix might air somewhere around September 2016. Here’s the trailer for you to watch-
