The lead role is played by actress Maria Bopp. In June 2017, FOX confirmed the start of recordings of the second season of the series, which also stars Sérgio Malheiros and Maitê Proença.

2010

The film based on Bruna's story was approved by the Ministry of Culture to receive a state subsidy. The title was be the same as the first book, "O Doce Veneno do Escorpião" (The Sweet Poison of Scorpio), and would receive about four million reais by means of a tax waiver. The film was directed by Marcus Baldini with screenplay by José Carvalho, Homero Olivetto and Antonia Pellegrino and produced by Rio producer TvZERO. Casting began in October 2007, with the shooting originally scheduled for 2008. and the premiere for April 2010. Deborah Secco was chosen to play Rachel. The film's first teaser was released July 19, 2010. The title was later changed to simply Bruna Surfistinha, and was a box office hit.

2006

Raquel Pacheco began her literary efforts through a blog, under the name Bruna Surfistinha, where she commented on her routine as a call girl. This blog became popular among internet users, gaining about ten thousand monthly visits to the site. In this blog, Raquel referred to preferences and customs of her nightlife in a way analogous to the ordinary diaries of teenagers. After some time as a prostitute, Rachel met her ex-husband, João Correa de Moraes who she publicly referred to as "Peter" or "John Paul", who she married in 2005. After seeing her as a client about seven times, João Correa abandoned his then wife to live with Rachel. In 2006, during Rachel's fame, he even made a public appearance on Programa do Jô. On April 27, 2006, The New York Times published an article about the phenomenon by Larry Rohter entitled, The One Who Controls Her Body May Annoy Her Countrymen. The article comments on the popularity of Raquel Pacheco's book in Brazil.

Once released, the book quickly topped the bestseller list, with crowded book signing and release nights in Portugal and Spain, as well as several print runs. The sales reached a total of 250 thousand copies. In 2006 a second book by Raquel, "O que Aprendi com Bruna Surfistinha" (What I Learned from Bruna Surfistinha), was released by the same publisher, Panda Books, with text written by same journalist Jorge Tarquini. Sales reached 18 thousand copies, considered good for the Brazilian market. In 2007, the third book of the series was released, "Na cama com Bruna Surfistinha" (In bed with Bruna Surfistinha), this time written by Raquel Pacheco. This book has material written especially for the adult audience, and there is an age indication on the cover.

In 2006, adult movie producer Sexxxy released the DVD "3X com Bruna Surfistinha" where Raquel Pacheco participates in three pornographic stories. In an interview in Programa do Jô on Rede Globo, Rachel reported that she regretted having recorded the DVD. She revealed that she received a fee of only R$500 for her participation. Which, according to her, was the same as the fee for seeing 3 clients and seemed to make sense at the time.

2005

She revealed that her greatest sadness was that her father had died without talking to her again, and that she resented her mother for not wanting to see her anymore, but that she is very happy with her current life. She was married from 2005 to 2015 to a former client of hers. She revealed that she intends to have children up to the age of forty, but that professional projects always make her postpone motherhood. In 2011, she converted to Umbanda, revealing that through this religion she found a path of healing and spiritual evolution. Surfistinha had a premonitory dream about the death of her father, so a friend took her to a yard, and there an entity confirmed that he had died, which made her desperate. She called her mother, who confirmed the death. This left her shaken and she even attempted suicide, but she is now able to overcome the loss with the help of spirituality.

In 2005, still under the auspices of the fame of her blog, Surfistinha published an account of her life. The book, titled "O Doce Veneno do Escorpião — O Diário de uma Garota de Programa" (The Sweet Poison of Scorpio - The Diary of a Call Girl), was a non-fictional description of life as a prostitute, written by journalist Jorge Tarquini, who collected the girl's testimonials to write the work. The only page Rachel herself wrote was the last, where she says she decided to drop prostitution. In the book, the reader finds descriptions of a young prostitute who entered a world, she said, unknown, but became routine to her:

1984

Bruna Surfistinha (Portuguese for "Little Surfer Bruna") is the pen name of Raquel Pacheco (born 28 October 1984), a Brazilian former sex worker who attracted the attention of Brazilian media by publishing, in a blog, her sexual experiences with clients. Bruna explained in television programs that she was a normal girl, who had been adopted by a high/middle-class family but that at around the age of 17 she left her home and her family because of the traditional family oriented views of her father and to start to live on her own. Bruna appeared in various television programs in Brazil and several periodicals and magazines. Her blog attracted more than 50,000 readers per day. She appeared in some pornographic films in Brazil. In 2005, she released a book entitled O Doce Veneno do Escorpião (The Scorpion's Sweet Venom). In just over a month it sold over 30,000 copies in its third edition, and became the best selling book in Brazil. The book was translated into English and published by Bloomsbury Publishing in 2006. Bruna's book also inspired the 2011 Brazilian film Confessions of a Brazilian Call Girl, starring Deborah Secco in the main role, and the 2016 TV series Me Chama de Bruna, starring Maria Bopp in the main role. In 2011, Bruna also appeared in a Brazilian reality show called A Fazenda (local version of The Farm) finishing as the second runner-up (third place). Confessions of a Brazilian Call Girl grossed $12,356,515 in Brazil, first national film after international films in the Brazil 2011 Box Office, thanks to Bruna's popularity with the Brazilian public.
