Boris is an Italian television series produced from 2007 to 2010; after eleven years of absence, a revival will be produced for Disney+ in 2021.[1]

Boris brings to the stage the behind the scenes of a television set where a troupe is shooting Gli occhi del cuore 2 (The eyes of the heart 2), a satirical portrait of the many fictions airing on the Italian TV networks. The series consists of 3 seasons and a movie for the cinema, Boris: The Film, released in 2011. The series was aired in premiere vision in Italy by the satellite channels FOX and FX, and subsequently on Cielo and Rai 3. The series is now on Star.


The show starts with Alessandro arriving on the set where the TV show Gli occhi del cuore 2 (The eyes of the heart 2) is being shot as the new intern of direction. As soon as he arrives, he finds out that the world of the television is not like what he had imagined. In command of the crew there's René Ferretti, a director who gave up on quality content and shoots fictions of poor level. In addition to the members of the crew there are the actors, Stanis and Corinna, who are the protagonists of the fiction. Through Alessandro we see the making of the fiction, with its various problems and unexpected events and always at risk of being shut down.


After various speculations, on February 16, 2021, during the press conference dedicated to the launch of the Star section of Disney +, a fourth season of Boris is announced, consisting of 6 episodes lasting 30 minutes each, published as Star Original . During the presentation, the return of the historical cast was confirmed, which this time will be grappling with the world of streaming and social platforms. The new season will be produced by Lorenzo Mieli for The Apartment, a subsidiary of Fremantle.[2]
