    Carnivale. The credits alone were the most costly and timely to make. The show does not lack in the quality that the credits bring. Set in the 1930s Dust Bowl, 18-year old Ben Hawkins finds himself all alone in this world when his mother passes on. But a travelling Carnivale takes him in. We also see the story of Brother Justin, a priest who is trying to find his way in the world. Little do Ben and Justin know, but they are to fight in a biblical battle. With help on the side (Ben with the carnie folk (Sofie, Libby, Apollonia, Ruthie, Samson, Lila, Lodz, Management) and Justin with his sister, Iris) they find out which side each are on and try to battle with the other for what they believe.moreless

    Mandrake is an HBO Latin America original series, starring Marcos Palmeira as Paolo Mandrake, the suave Brazilian playboy who makes a living as an exceptionally talented criminal lawyer. This series is based on the characters created by celebrated Brazilian novelist Rubem Fonseca, whose work is often characterized by gritty urban settings and steamy, sexually charged characters. This series is no different, offering exciting and intense criminal law action paired side-by-side with Mandrake's insatiable desire for attractive women, fine wines, cuban cigars, and nights on the town. Luis Carlos Miele co-stars as Leon Wexler, an associate of Mandrake's who maintains the moral high ground, always ready to help Mandrake out of whatever jam he's gotten himself into. Marcelo Serrado plays Raul, a cop who was a childhood pal of Mandrake's and regularly helps the hot-shot lawyer win cases by providing inside information from the police department. Mandrake is an exciting and stylish series, and the first HBO original series created for HBO Brazil.moreless
