Where is Globo’s Projac in Rio de Janeiro?
Globo’s Projac is located in Jacarepaguá, west of Rio de Janeiro. In addition to the soap opera Toda as Flores, the station’s other serials and studio programs are also recorded on site.
Globo Studios is the largest and most modern TV production center in Latin America and took seven years to build. The official inauguration took place in 1995 by journalist Roberto Marinho, then president of Grupo Globo.
The first telenovela produced in the new studio was Explode Coração (1995), by Gloria Perez. At the time, the site was called Projac, an abbreviation for Projeto Jacarepaguá.
