During her time as executive of the service, Maria Angela was at the head of productions such as Coisa Mais Linda, Irmandade and Bom Dia, Verônica, all considered to be a public success and which had new seasons commissioned by the platform.
“I am grateful to have contributed to the incursion of Netflix into scripted TV series, creating unique and authentic content.

No I could feel more proud about everything we have achieved and I wish the team a lot of success, as I continue on new challenges in my career “, said Maria Angela de Jesus in a statement sent to the report.
Francisco Ramos, vice president of content for Latin America, praised the work done by the now ex-executive and wished him well in his next career steps.

We are enormously grateful for their contributions and wish very successful in the next phase of his career “, he declared.
