The melodramatic series, classified as a “telenovela” by Netflix’s description, reached the fifth position on the global top list. Under the title “Desperate Lies” (“Mentiras Desesperadas” in free translation), the series amassed 1.8 million views since its premiere last Friday (5th).

“Desperate Lies” also ranks in the top 10 series on Netflix in 21 countries, including Argentina, Ecuador, Paraguay, Portugal, Hungary, Poland, Kenya, and others.

In “Desperate Lies,” Juliana Paes plays Liana, who is married to Tomás (Vladimir Brichta). She becomes pregnant with twins but discovers they have different fathers, a rare case of heteropaternal superfecundation. While one father is her husband, the other is someone from her past.
