Last Thursday, the fifth episode of the new season of “Grey’s Anatomy” was shown in the United States. It wouldn’t be a big deal if it weren’t for one detail: A Brazilian, Beto Scopus, co-authored the chapter.
Peto was born in Piracicaba, São Paulo, and now lives in Los Angeles and is part of the medical series writing team, created by Shonda Rhimes. After working at Globo, he summarized in his column what that experience was like.
“It is difficult to say exactly how many days it lasted [a escrita do episódio], because in a way, parts of the text come from day one. Abstract, metrics, brainstorming, etc. The script itself ends up being out quickly, but the process is long, and the script changes daily during production as well. It’s like a living document! “
Could we see something more “Brazilian” in the American medical chain then? Beto Skubs says that “in the episode that aired, there are two characters named my friends. It’s impossible to separate my identity from my nationality, and I hope this combination will be the spark to create great things, whether in ‘Grey’s’ on another project in Hollywood or in Brazil.”
He also predicted how this new season of “Grey’s Anatomy” would be broadcast in the United States: “In the past, the series embraced the epidemic, something that was very brave and necessary. This time, we will return to other stories” We want to bring back the sense of humor, bring the classic characters to the emergence, And create new stories. And every season, we always aim to do better than before!”
