Hot on the heels of Deutschland 83 and Spin, Walter Presents has lined up its latest show: Magnifica 70.
The HBO Latin American series takes place in 1970, with Brazil under military dictatorship. Film censor Vicente leads a boring and conventional existence. However, Vicente’s life is turned upside down when he falls in love with an actress, Dora Dumar, the lead in an erotic production he is forced to ban. Vicente is sucked into the shady world of production company Magnifica Films and soon finds himself writing and directing his own surreal ‘pornochanchada’. Meanwhile, the object of Vicente’s desires has her own secret plans…
The entire series will be released on All 4’s Walter Presents on 27th May as a box set to stream. It joins a growing collection of TV shows from around the world, all available on-demand for free (with adverts) exclusively on Channel 4’s online VOD service.
