The end of programs like Zorra, Fora de Hora, Escolinha do Professor Raimundo, and the painting Isso a Globo Não Mostra, should cause series layoffs within Globo. According to columnist Ricardo Feltrin, from UOL, the number of dismissed employees should be between 150 and 180 employees.
Feltrin said that the number was revealed by officials heard between Thursday afternoon and evening (15) and the layoffs must take place between actors, producers, writers and other areas involved in the station’s humorous sector, which is due to undergo a reformulation.
In a statement, Globo said it plans to launch a new project in 2021 that will offer a wide range of content within a single program. The broadcaster classified the new formula as a “format laboratory”.
– We will offer the viewer the best of each genre (humor), in a varied program and with many possibilities for future developments. It will be a true laboratory of formats and talents that could bring us more news – pointed out Globo.
A Globo source heard by the columnist said that the company should again absorb the professionals who will be fired, but the number should be reduced. The form of the contract must also change, from the bonds in the portfolio to the contracts by work or season.
Feltrin said the broadcaster’s decision was viewed with a mixture of “sadness and bewilderment” by some employees in WhatsApp groups. Others also complained that there was no “advance notice” about programs leaving the air. However, some recalled that the layoffs in Zorra were already expected since the end of last year.
The indications that major changes in the sector were underway grew after Marcius Melhem’s resignation two months ago. With the departure of the “head” of Globo’s humor, the position should now be occupied by Marcelo Adnet.
