Power Couple’s success is truly global with sales continuing both in new and existing markets thanks to its enduring appeal.”

Marcelo Silva, Artistic and Programming Vice President of Record TV added: “Power Couple Brazil was born as a program with two weekly editions and we realized that it had the potential to grow in our grid. Thus, we come to the format of five weekly editions, from Monday to Friday. As a result, the program had more viewers on all platforms and became the most talked about on social networks.”
“Today, it is among the most popular confinement realities in Brazil and demonstrates long-term potential on open television and other platforms. In the fifth season, we will have even more news and a new presenter.”
