HOP! is a portuguese independent production company, focused on producing international quality drama series.
Founded in 2001 by Henrique Oliveira, former partner and founder of another known production company, MIRAGEM, which was runned between 1987 and 2001. The entire MIRAGEM team moved to HOP!, and the new producer company continued the work already done previously.
HOP! is probably the leader in producing and creating original and high-end fiction series with the largest and most prestigious curriculum in Portugal. Our aim and vision is to produce series (and documentaries) of national original content with the dimension, quality and potential to be distributed internationally. HOP’s first major investment is always in recognizing the projects that might have this global appeal. The company focuses in identifying a good story and script and a good novel to adapt, always believing in the concept “glocal”: local in the production but global in the subject matters so that the series can travel internationally.
VIDAGO PALACE, a co – production with Galicia (Spain), is a good example as a result of this achievement. Everything since the beginning, was created and developed from writing to production, in order to be distributed globally.
