Disney has announced that the Latin American series, “Damned Saint” aka “Santo Maldito”, is coming out on Wednesday, 8th February 2023 on Star+ in Latin America, on Hulu in the United States and on Disney+ internationally, including in the UK, Australia and Canada.
In this Brazilian drama, Reinaldo’s wife is in a vegetative state, so this atheist teacher makes a difficult decision to bring an end to her suffering. However, as if by a miracle, she suddenly wakes up. Reinaldo, however, was unaware that his ordeal was being filmed by a member of a local church. In the eyes of the camera, a divine phenomenon just occurred. Samuel, a failed pastor, offers Reinaldo a large sum of cash to preach to his congregation, believing Reinaldo to be a man enlightened by God. Saddled with debt he acquired from the hospital bills, Reinaldo agrees — and soon he transforms into a religious leader and a strangely complex figure.
The series stars Felipe Camargo, Ana Flávia Cavalcanti, Augusto Madeira, along with Bárbara Luz (“ Unicórnio” ), Marina Provenzzano (“ Todas as Mulheres do Mundo” ), Vinícius Meloni (“ Todos os Mortos” ), Helena Albergaria (“ Que Horas Ela Volta” ), Mariana Sena (“ Mar do Sertão” ), João Assunção (“ Entre Idas e Vindas” ), Flávio Bauraqui (“ Arcanjo Renegado” ) and Ravel Cabral (“ Insania” ), with the special participation of Othon Bastos (“ O Paciente”; ” After the Universe” ).
“Damned Saint” is made by Intro Pictures and consists of eight 45-minute episodes. It is directed by Gustavo Bonafé (“ Insania” ), Mariana Bastos (“ Alguma Coisa Assim” ) and Lucas Fazzio (“ Two Tons” ). The script was written by Rubens Marinelli (“ Entre Lágrimas e Risos” ), Ricardo Tiezzi (“ O Outro Lado do Paraíso” ) and Bea Góes (“ Quarentenados” ), with the collaboration of Carla Meireles (“ Manhãs de Setembro” ), Fábio Rodrigo (“ Kairo” ), Vinicius Vasconcellos (“ Todos os Mortos” ) and Matheus Hruschka (“ Entre Lágrimas e Risos” ).
