Through a press release, Netflix has announced that it is developing a new series created, written and directed by Ivan Cotroneo, entitled The Life You Wanted
Netflix’s catalog of movies and TV series continues to expand hour after hour, so much so that it is now difficult to keep up with all the new arrivals. Among these, in the past few hours, the company has also announced The Life You Wanted, a new series produced by Banijay Studios Italy and which will be exclusive to the platform. The filming of the new six-episode production has just begun and will take place between Legge, Salento and Naples (and after the closure of Mare Fuori Season 3 it was almost needed).
The series, created and written by Ivan Cotroneo and Monica Rametta and directed by Cotroneo himself, starring Vittoria Schisano (Gloria), Giuseppe Zeno (Sergio), Pina Turco (Marina), Alessio Lapice (Peter) and Nicola Bello (Andrea). The production will be curated by Massimo Del Frate, Head of Drama for Banijay Studios Italy. The life you wanted is a story of bonds, friendship and discovery, which tells of the happiness we believe we want (planned, orderly, simple) but also of the one that surprises us, which messes up life. This is what happens to Gloria, the protagonist, and then resonates in all the characters in the story.
The synopsis of the TV series, as disclosed by Netflix, is as follows:
Gloria, the protagonist of THE LIFE YOU WANTED, is convinced that she has found happiness in Lecce, where she founded a small tourist agency and found love with Ernesto but, one day, her life is turned upside down by the arrival of Marina, her friend at the university in Naples, before Gloria started her transition path. Marina brings with her Andrea and Arianna, her children from two different relationships, and is pregnant with a third, whose father is Pietro, a young man with a passionate and perhaps even dangerous character. Gloria would prefer not to reconnect with Marina, she reminds her of a part of her life that she would like to forget. However, Marina hides many secrets and soon Sergio, Arianna’s father, will also arrive on the scene, a man in one piece who was immediately very distrustful of Gloria. For her, the time has come to come to terms with “the life she wanted”, her past and her future, to discover that happiness sometimes comes in unexpected forms and that love is the only force capable of make life worth living.
