“Backdoor is the ‘puerta trasera’ to a hilarious, provocative and uncensored creative space that disrupts mainstream comedy.

“Since becoming part of the Viacom family, we have worked with Porta Dos Fundos on expanding the brand and continuing creating bold, unique and universal humor that transcends language and platform barriers – the first step on their global expansion is Mexico’s Backdoor”, added Tiago Worcman, Brand Head for Music & Entertainment Brands at Viacom International Media Networks – (VIMN) Americas. “We are sure that this show will entertain Prime Video’s audiences as much as the best content in their catalog.”
Backdoor features universal and relatable comedy sketches and parodies depicting diverse social situations in a satirically exaggerated manner. Contemporary culture, current events and politics are usually at the center of mockery. The series is produced by Porta dos Fundos and Viacom International Studios (VIS).
