Fox wraps first miniseries in Brazil

'9 mm' to air in early 2008

RIO DE JANEIRO — Brazilian indie Moonshot Pictures has wrapped production of “9 mm: Sao Paulo,” Fox Intl. Channel’s first original miniseries made in Brazil, which will be aired in Latin America early in 2008.

Moonshot made four 47-minute episodes, loosely based on well-known police cases in Sao Paulo, South America’s largest city. Brazilian helmer Michael Ruman directed the Portuguese-language series. Newton Cannito wrote the script, based on the original idea of journalist/writer Carlos Amorim, a local expert on organized crime.

“The plot is centered on five policemen of Sao Paulo’s Civil Police Homicide Division. It is more along the lines of ‘The Sopranos’ and ‘The Shield,’ as opposed to ‘CSI’ and ‘Law & Order.’ The focus is on the characters’ lives, not on the solution of crime investigations,” said Roberto D’Avila, general director of Moonshot. Shingle also made “Brazil’s Next Top Model” and the local version of reality show “America’s Next Top Model” for Sony this year.

“9 mm: Sao Paulo” is Fox Intl. Channel’s second original drama skein for basic cable in Latin America.

“Tiempo final” (Countdown) debuted Oct. 26 on Canal Fox in Latin America, produced by Fox Telecolombia in Bogota, Colombia.
