ALINA SANTANA: Seeking talent 13-16 (Talent to look 13). The character identifies as female. Talent must be of Brazilian descent. Born in the outskirts of Rio, Alina had to move to Copacabana at a very early age after her father passed away. Since then, she’s always searching for “home”. Alina is resilient, fearless and not afraid to go after what she wants. On the other hand, she’s a dreamer and her head is always in the clouds. She does things without really thinking them through. Alina has a big sense of humor and loves to have fun. She doesn’t always take herself too seriously, because all the training and the pressure in her life is serious enough. LEAD

TONE: An upbeat yet grounded preteen sports dramedy.
LOGLINE: Brazilian figure skating hopeful, Alina Santana (13), is thrust into the highly competitive environment of the world’s most prestigious ice-skating academy when she receives a scholarship to the High-Performance Winter Sports School (HPWSS) in Toronto, ON. The only thing more difficult than the rigorous practice schedule is navigating the thin ice of the school’s social scene.
Born in Rio de Janeiro, where the sun shines all year round and the coldest day of the year requires a thin sweater, Alina is a total fish-out-of-water in a frozen pond at the HPWSS. But this Carioca fireball will stop at nothing to make her dreams come true. Alina will ultimately realize that what makes her different is not a weakness, but the source of her greatness. When she embraces herself and her skating style, she will not only thrive, but she will inspire others and bring much needed change to the world around her.
