"A Favorita" 2008

Synopsis:

A Favorita is a telenovela, first broadcast in Brazil at Rede Globo from June 2, 2008 to January 17, 2009. A Favorita storylines examine two friends, Donatela and Flora, who became rivals. One of them committed a crime and is lying, so there are two versions of the same story. The series was originally screened as six episodes per week, from Monday to Saturday, with an average running time of one hour. Created by writer João Emanuel Carneiro, A Favorita has remained significant in terms of Globo's success and audience share, and also in Brazilian television drama history, tackling many controversial and taboo issues previously unseen on mainstream television in Brazil. It made history for being the first telenovela where the public did not know who was the villain and who was telling the truth.
