The series centers around the fictional design firm Sugarbaker and Associates, a witty bully pulpit for caustic social and political humor.

Dorman has played the lead on the Amazon Studios’ quirky genre-bending spy drama series Patriot whose second season was ordered 16 months ago but is yet to air.

The anthology drama will return with a “wholly original” story in its second year, the streamer’s senior vice president and head of content Craig Erwich tells Variety.

So expectations were high to begin with, but it exceeded them,” he says. “The reaction from the variety of audiences has

Co-produced and to be aired by Warner Channel Brasil, “Love Me Not” went into production Aug. 14 in Brazil. “3%” producer Tiago Mello will executive produce for Boutique Filmes.
Success in such a large TV market as Brazil is vital for any domestic TV series. But as Brazilian series score on Netflix, and win prizes at Cannes, such as a Mip Drama Screening’s Grand Jury Prize for Globo’s “Jailers,” the ambitions of Boutique Filmes and Warner Channel, who co-own overseas rights, run beyond the domestic TV scene.

That ambition goes with a series set in Brazil’s

“In a way, we’re all trapped in a sexual slavery pizza/baseball dugout, in our minds,” Jefferies joked.
