Sua Vida Me Pertence (Portuguese for Your Life Belongs To Me) is a Brazilian pioneering television series known as the first telenovela produced in the country.[1] The show was broadcast in black and white by the now defunct TV Tupi in São Paulo from 1951 to 1952.[1] The series pioneered the telenovela genre worldwide, and featured Brazil's first on-screen television kiss in broadcast history between actress Vida Alves and actor Wálter Forster.[1]

Unlike soap operas, it concentrated on one primary story line and reached a conclusion after a set number of episodes. In this format, it was an innovation of its age, and was progenitor of a hundred such shows thereafter.

The series premiered on December 21, 1951,[1] just over a year since the birth of TV Tupi. It was broadcast live, twice per week, for fifteen episodes, and centred upon the will-they won't they romance between an attractive young girl, played by Vida Alves, and her lover, played by Wálter Forster, acting as a launch-pad to fame for the latter.[2]

The series marked its 65th anniversary of its debut on December 21, 2016.[1]
