Super production aired by Rede Record. I was a co-writer of this huge success: the series raised the network’s audience in more than 100%, with a public of 8 to 10 million people/ day. With external scenes recorded in Israel and Egypt and VFX made in Hollywood, this recreation of Moses’ story had an investment of 40 million dollars in 165 chapters and a crew of more than 500 professionals.
We were five writers and had the mission of being faithful to the Bible while telling an intense and dramatic story to conquer the public. Also, we had to work with the constraints of a big epic production tight deadlines. We did detailed research over the books Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy, with two historians’ consultancy. I was responsible for writing dialogues, creating plots and revising the final draft. . The result was amazing.
