RIO DE JANEIRO — Brazil’s No. 2 net, SBT, will produce “Casamento a moda antiga,” its local version of Fox’s reality series “Married by America.” Net plans to launch the three-month series at the end of September. It will feature 15-minute episodes Monday-Saturday and a two-hour seg on Sunday nights. SBT will make the show in its Sao Paulo production complex.
Net has so far received about 3,000 applications through its Web site. “Surprisingly, 80% of the applications are from women,” the company’s spokeswoman says.
