Joo Gabriel Marinho recorded the series in Australia and was even cast in Malhaçao, but the project was cancelled.
Summer Turbulence is the new Netflix series, which entered the catalog on June 3. Addressing the universe of surfing, the attraction features a Brazilian actor: Joo Gabriel Marinho.
The actor was cited as the protagonist of Malhakao, who was cast in 2019. With the COVID-19 pandemic, the project was canceled and no new seasons could be done, other than the end of the traditional teen soap opera.
After two online tests, Joo Gabriel was approved as the protagonist of Turbulencias de Verao. The recording took place in Australia and the results can be seen in the streaming giant’s catalog.
What is the plot of Summer Unrest?
In the plot of the series, Summer Torres is expelled from two elite private schools in New York. She is sent to a small town in Shorehaven, Australia, supposedly as a way to “rehabilitate” her or force her to gain a new outlook on life. While Summer is not happy with this turn of events, she begins to settle down, make friends and even find love with some surfers at her home away from home.
At the same time, Ari Gibson, a teenager who appears to be a very skilled surfer, may be out of luck. An old man tells you that he can’t take everything in his life as a big joke. While still in the teen group, Bodhi Mercer and Poppy Tetanui compete in a women’s surfing competition and bond with Summer in an unlikely friendship.
