New Brazilian comedy series Compro Likes is set for its US and global premiere.
Compro Likes follows Wagner (Fábio Lago, Dom, Invisible City), a dejected actor who pays the bills by performing at nursing homes and children’s birthday parties. After countless failed casting calls, Wagner seeks guidance from the eccentric guru Johnny Silva (Lúcio Mauro Filho, A Life Worth Living), whose advice to pursue fame at all cost propels Wagner to invent a fake life on social media — complete with a fake romance with a celebrity and a fake role in an action movie. And to Wagner’s surprise, it works!
Wagner gains millions of followers and is actually cast in his first film role. But the price of internet fame comes with lots of haters and the ever-present threat of being canceled. Following Johnny’s step-by-step guide, Wagner undertakes wild and dangerous stunts that nearly break him and the internet. On the success of his biggest stunt yet, Wagner is invited to participate in a major movie production in Spain. But on the way there, his plane mysteriously disappears, leaving the world to ask: Where’s Wagner?
