Premise

Pedro (Selton Mello) is a young man, recently married to Clarisse (Débora Falabella), whom he sincerely loves. Pedro is a successful publicist with a promising career, and Clarisse happens to be his boss. But apparently that's not enough, for Pedro has an imaginary paramour, Amanda (Luana Piovani), a beautiful and sensuous blonde woman which of course only he can see. Amanda is an ideal woman, most in love with Pedro, and which, as she herself states, exists only to make him happy. Pedro's coworker and best friend Wilson, a cynical lover yet loyal friend, is as the series begins the only one to know Pedro's secret.

In the pilot episode, Clarisse, after a crisis, is up to divorce Pedro and discovers his imaginary love. She at first thinks he gone insane, but realizes that the love he feels for Amanda is the love he should feel for her, and so, in a strange way, that proves he still loves her. She forgives Pedro and is reconciled with him, after he promises "to send Amanda away".

In the end of that episode, though, we discover Amanda had not gone away definitively, and, as the second episode open, we know Pedro lied to Clarisse and Amanda is still there. Clarisse, angry and hurt, after quarreling a lot with Pedro, says she wants equal rights and will have a paramour too. When her idea of getting a fake illicit lover to arise jealousy in Pedro doesn't work, and he exposes her farce, she suddenly invents she has an imaginary lover too. Suffering, Pedro offers to send Amanda way, forever this time, if Clarisse stops that.

But the couple's life without Amanda reveals itself to be unhappy, and Clarisse, realizing Amanda was indeed the flame and joy of their relationship (as Pedro once said), makes Pedro to obtain Amanda's forgiveness, that is, she allows him to call back the image he indeed sent away.

Style and influence

Awards

A Mulher Invisível was prized as Best Comedy in the 2012 of the International Emmy Award.[2]
