Armoza Formats has confirmed that "La Famiglia" was acquired in Hungary by production company, Scripted Productions. The company has also extended "The Frame" into the Czech Republic. “In Scripted Productions, Hungary’s fastest growing productions house, we find it more than important to keep a close eye on internationally successful formats such as ‘La Famiglia,'" Barbara Hamori, Owner of Scripted Productions, said. "The show with its quirky sense of humour, touching and vibrant atmosphere is a great example of broad and universal content.”
"La Famiglia" continues its international travel and has reached its 8th territory, with over 350 episodes commissioned. The original Israeli series has aired three successful seasons on Channel 10 and Reshet 13. A second season of the format is currently in production for Amazon Prime Video in India and the series recently aired in Austria and Greece among others.
Developed and produced by United Studios of Israel and created by Ran Dovrat, Avi Belkin and Ohad Perach, "La Famiglia" follows the lives of a typical suburban family living in the divorce capital of the country. With many reasons to be happy, they have even more reasons to go to therapy – their sex life, his best friend, her complaints, and of course, his
mother. Their therapy sessions provide the entertaining basis for the series, through which we flashback to the comical, stand-alone scenes from their daily life. Each episode is a new therapy session in which they bring up the most embarrassing, bizarre, awkward and insane moments that are a part of every family’s life. “With the continued success of ‘La Famiglia”, we see the real need for family comedy that is truly universal and relatable no matter the culture or language," Avi Armoza, CEO of Armoza Formats, said. ‘La Famiglia’ has now reached its 8th territory with the acquisition in Hungary and we look forward to seeing this and many more adaptations of the format.”
Similarly, "The Frame," from Armoza Formats, part of ITV Studios, has established a presence in the Czech Republic, with the local rights to the format being taken by Bedna Films. "We connected with ‘The Frame’ because we saw its massive creative potential and the innovative cross platform aspect it brings," Petr Kratochvíl, Founder at Bedna Films, said. "Streaming technology has advanced miles since ‘The Frame’ was originally launched and viewers habits have shifted more towards online, making it the perfect fit for nowadays."
From July-August Productions, the cross-platform reality format features eight couples who have the living space in their own homes reduced to one fixed camera frame in this elimination competition with one rule - they cannot under any circumstances leave the frame. In an environment of increasing tension, the couples will have to deal with daily tasks, prizes, punishments, outside interventions and above all – each other! Over the course of 30 days they will compete, hoping to be one of the final two couples who will go head-to-head for the grand prize of $1 million. “‘The Frame’ is an innovative cross-platform social experiment that is filled with increasing tension, drama and user engagement," Elizaveta Makarova, Sales Executive for Eastern Europe at Armoza Formats, said. "The show will broadcast from the homes of the participants 24/7 making it the ultimate reality TV! And with us sitting at home for the last two years, it is more relatable than ever. We’re very much looking forward to the Czech adaptation of the show and entering ‘The Frame’.”
