‘El Negocio’ Returns to HBO Latino

HBO Latino subscribers can once again follow the lives of three sophisticated São Paulo-based women employed in the world’s oldest profession.

The second season of El Negocio, an original series brought to the U.S. from HBO Latin America, began airing on the premium channel July 10. New episodes will air Fridays at 10 p.m.

The series stars Rafaela Mandelli as Karin, Juliana Schalch as Luna, and Michelle Batista as Magali.

The second season of El Negocio focuses on how the marketing strategies used by Karin, Magali and Luna's escort-services company, Blue Ocean, have resulted in making their brand elite. However, a threat of piracy exists.

The second season of El Negocio consists of 13 hour-long episodes. The series is directed by Michel Tikhomiroff. Julia Jordao serves as the director of episodes, from the Mixer production company. Fabio Danesi and Rodrigo Castilho are principal writers.
