Disney is currently filming a brand new drama series called “Americana” in São Paulo Brazil, which is going to tell a story that is set in Americana, a municipality in the state of São Paulo, during the late 19th century and follows the Confederates who left the U.S. for Brazil after losing the American Civil War. We hear it follows a police officer and his female slave, who is also a detective, as they uncover the truth behind murders in the town. About 20,000 Confederate subjects — known as Confederados — left America to emigrate to Brazil in the 19th Century.

The series will consist of two six-episode seasons and according to Deadline, is going to launch on Star+ in Latin America in 2024.  Should this series follow other recent Latin American originals, we will likely see the show released on Hulu in the United States and on Disney+ internationally.
