Author Cristianne Fridman had big plans for a nine o’clock soap opera on Globo, but was turned down by the network. After the cut, the author, who started her career at the audience leader, but worked at Record for years, will now try to create a plot for the seven o’clock slot. The story focused on a couple from rival families, against the backdrop of the war between drug trafficking and the militia for territorial control.
Furthermore, the daughter of a drug dealer and the son of a politician who financed the militia would be the protagonists. The two would fall in love in the plot when they met outside of this context. The information is from the newspaper O Globo.
Fridman’s contract with Record came to an end in December last year. The author began working at the station in 2005, and produced titles such as Bicho do Mato, Chamas da Vida, Vidas em Jogo, Vitória, Jezabel, Topíssima and Amor Sem Igual.
At Globo, he collaborated on two seasons of Malhação and Coração de Estudante, and is now trying to get new titles.
