O Rei da TV (The King of TV) centers on the life of Silvio Santos, one of the biggest presenters on Brazilian television.

Opening in 1988, the series sees Silvio Santos (José Rubens Chachá, Good Morning, Verônica) diagnosed with a serious problem with his vocal cords, which will leave him voiceless. The fear of being forced to leave the stage brings back memories of his trajectory — from his childhood as a street hawker, to his struggle to obtain the SBT TV channel concession during the military dictatorship.

O Rei da TV: Season 1, a Hulu Original, premieres in the US tomorrow, Wednesday, March 29, exclusively on Hulu.
