“It is with great pride that we announce the start of recording another soap opera”, comments Mônica Albuquerque, director of Talent Management and Development of Fiction Productions at Warner Bros. Discovery. “The new version of the classic MADAM BEJA reaffirms our strategic positioning in relation to the production of national content: we seek stories that bring contemporary themes, even when approached from a period perspective. And Dona Beja has this purpose. The authors were very sensitive in approaching themes that are still so relevant to our country.”

MADAM BEJA is an HBO Max soap opera, produced and licensed by Floresta. Written by Daniel Berlinsky, António Barreira and collaboration with Maria Clara Mattos, Cecília Giannetti, Clara Anastácia and Ceci Alves.
