“As Panteras” will have a Brazilian youth version


Developed by Sony Pictures Television, the new adaptation will have a screenplay by Suzana Pires and will focus on pre-teen characters.




Sony Pictures Television, in collaboration with Brazilian production company Floresta, announced the development of a new version of the “Panteras” franchise aimed at young audiences in Brazil. Brazilian actress and writer Suzana Pires, known for her work in “Sol Nascente” and “Flor do Caribe”, will be responsible for the screenplay of this unusual collaboration.

Production details

In the plot, three pre-teens from different backgrounds are chosen by a scout, due to their special abilities, to join a secret school for spies, called Academia dos Anjos. Each episode will follow young women as they solve crimes and save the world, balancing school life with spy missions. In other words, more “Alex Rider” and “Project Mc²” than the original “Charlie’s Angels”.

Team expectations and contributions

Joe D’Ambrosia, executive vice president and general manager of SPT – Kids, expressed excitement about the project: “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to evolve this incredible IP from Sony for a younger, more modern audience.” He highlighted the series’ commitment to engaging, hook-filled narratives while staying true to mystery, adventure, comedy and female empowerment.

Suzana Pires commented on her involvement in a statement: “When Thiago Teitelroit from Floresta and Sony invited me to be part of the adaptation of ‘Charlie’s Angels’ in Brazil, I could only respond with a resounding yes.” She promises to deliver elaborate spy plots with an essential pinch of comedy.

A franchise that spans generations

The franchise began with the television series “Charlie’s Angels”, which aired from 1976 to 1981, created by Ivan Goff and Ben Roberts and produced by Aaron Spelling. Several adaptations followed, including a 2000 film revival starring Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu, and a more recent version directed by Elizabeth Banks, starring Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska.

Thiago Teitelroit underlined the longevity of the series: “It is rare that franchises have spanned so many generations without failing to entertain a wide audience. It is a unique opportunity, considering not only the market, but above all because the Brazilian public will be able to explore new forms of entertainment with charismatic and timeless characters.”
