Set to unfold across seven episodes, the series is produced by Lorenzo Mieli on behalf of The Apartment (part of the Fremantle group) and by Matteo Rovere for Groenlandia (of the Banijay group). The show will drop in 190 countries in 2023.

The story is loosely based on the life of Rocco Siffredi and his direct testimonies, revolving around unseen aspects of the pornstar and recounting a profound tale which explores his life from childhood onwards: his family, his origins, his relationship with love, and the starting point and context which caused him to take the path of pornography.

The series’ cast also includes Jasmine Trinca (whose first directorial effort Marcel! [+lire aussi :

Supersex is the story of a man who takes seven episodes and 350 minutes to say I love you, to accept that the demon he has in his body is compatible with love. In order for this to happen, he has to expose the only part of himself we’ve never seen: his soul”, specifies Manieri, whose recent works include L’immensità [+lire aussi :
