Yes Studios' "Bloody Murray" comedy series (9x25’) to launch on on 9th February under the name of "Dana & Murray." This comedy, winner of Best Comedy at Series Mania in 2022, focuses on the relationship between best friends and roommates Murray and Dana, and their daily struggles as single, thirty-something women.

Dana is a gynaecologist and Murray a film lecturer specialising in romantic comedies. Their lives change when Murray flees the scene of a hit and run, and the man she crashed in to, Lior, shows up at her apartment – where he meets Dana and the two fall madly in love. However, Murray soon realises that she has her own feelings for Lior. Lonely, and taking a cue from her work and the tropes of the romantic comedies she knows so well, Murray convinces herself that Lior is actually meant for her.

"Bloody Murray" has also previously been sold to CBC in Canada. A second season is in development following a re-commission by yes TV. The series was created and written by Stav Idisis and produced by yes TV and Kastina Communications.yes Studios represents the completed series and format worldwide.

Sharon Levi, managing director at yes Studios comments:“We are pleased to have extended our relationship with Arte by concluding a deal for this entertaining comedy. With its wonderfully drawn characters, light touch, and all the feel good fun and wit of a romcom, we expect that this delightful series will prove a big hit with Arte audiences.”
