The series is co-produced by Spiral International and Boutique Filmes together with Executive Producers Zasha Robles and Gustavo Mello, respectively. The show is created by Gustavo Mello, Thomas Stavros and Thiago Faelli, directed by Isabel Valiante and written by Thomas Stavros, Gabriela Giffoni, José Guertzenstein and Ronaldo Lasmar.

“As we are in the middle of a Storytelling renaissance, particularly regarding stories told by US episodic series, yet embracing the local reality, we are thrilled to bring Negotiator to the international market, together with Boutique Filmes. Negotiator is a cinematic Brazilian-Noir series with all the right elements to cast a net across a wide audience, and the ability to play in any Basic Cable, Free TV, and/or Streamer. Fremantle is the right partner to help the series travel outside Latin America and we couldn’t be happier to work on another project with their team. And last but not least, Amazon Brazil/Latin America has been a wonderful partner to work with and we anxiously look forward to their premiere coming up in July,” Zasha Robles, from Spiral International.
“It is great to partner with Spiral and Fremantle and an immense pleasure for us here at Boutique Filmes, to be able to bring to the world a show created and produced in Brazil. A powerful local story that will conquer the audience around the globe. One important step in the consolidation of Boutique’s and Brazil’s presence in the international market,” says Gustavo Mello, from Boutique Filmes.
Jill Kellie, VP Scripted Acquisitions, Fremantle said: “Inspired by real events, Negotiator is a slick, high-stakes police thriller set in the vibrant city of São Paulo. We’ve no doubt viewers will be hooked by its rich episodic storylines and stunning visual quality, and couldn’t be happier to be partnering with Spiral International and Boutique Filmes to help take this impressive series to international audiences.”
