Supersex: Netflix series inspired by Italian porn star Rocco Siffredi

Alessandro Borghi takes on the role of Siffredi.

Supersex, an original Netflix series based on the life and career of legendary Italian porn star Rocco Siffredi, will be released by the streaming platform on 6 March.

The seven-episode drama, available on Netflix in more than 190 countries around the world, stars Rome actor Alessandro Borghi in the role of Siffredi.

Borghi, 36, is best known for playing the character Aureliano in the hit Netflix series and movie Suburra.

"Inspired by true events, this is the story of how Rocco Siffredi escaped a humble life and emerged as the world's greatest porn star", states the Netflix website.

Supersex is loosely inspired by the origins and career of Siffredi, 59, who has starred in more than 1,300 pornographic films.

Jasmine Trinca plays Lucia, a fictional female character, with Adriano Giannini in the role of Tommaso, Rocco's half-brother, and Saul Nanni as a young Siffredi.

Created and written by Francesca Manieri, the Supersex series is directed by Matteo Rovere, Francesco Carrozzini and Francesca Mazzoleni.

Supersex is the story of a man who takes seven episodes and 350 minutes to say ‘I love you,’ to accept that the demon in his body is compatible with love,” said Manieri. “To do this, he must expose the only part of him that we have never seen: his soul.”

The series is the latest in a growing number of Italian productions by Netflix which has a base in Rome near Via Veneto.
