Anitta is huge in her homeland of Brazil, and a star of Latin Pop. But like any artist with ambition, she has her sights set on taking over America. Anitta: Made In Honorio is a made-for-Netflix introduction to the pop singer’s life. Anitta is a pop celebrity phenomenon in her native Brazil and a worldwide media force to the tune of 4.8 billion YouTube viewers, 47 million Instagram followers, and millions of monthly Spotify streamers. Since 2013, the 27-year-old singer, real name Larissa de Macedo Machado, has dropped four hit studio records. But one thing she hasn’t done is conquer America, and that’s what Made In Honorio is designed to help change. Audiences are introduced to Anitta’s world, from glittering performances on international stages, to chaotic behind-the-scenes, and mellower moments at home in Rio de Janeiro with her close-knit extended family. With its rapid-fire edits and flickering rush of flashy performance footages – the first episode joins a cascading whirlwind already in progress. Luckily, the action slows a bit, and Honorio gathers itself to reveal the woman at the center of it all as a gregarious lover of the spotlight who also relishes and demands control of her media brand down to each individual job within it.
