Armoza Formats, part of ITV Studios, has announced the commission of six series by new platform, IZZY. The service, which exclusively offers Israeli content to viewers around the world, will stream the finished tapes of scripted dramas “Allenby,” “Muna,” “Red Lines,” and “Street Justice,” as well as scripted comedy “My Life in 60 Seconds” and docu-reality “Back to Life”.
“Allenby” (60’) is an addictive psychological drama that takes place in the depths of Tel Aviv´s night life; “Muna” (8x30’) follows the story of a successful and free-spirited Arab-Israeli photographer; “Red Lines” (13x60’) follows up-and-coming attorney Marcelle Ben-David who believes in justice above all else, even the law; “Street Justice” (60’) blurs the lines between legality and justice in a series packed with non-stop action and dangerous romance; “My Life in 60 Seconds” (18x30’) is a hilarious comedy that follows the life of Zvika Hadar, the real-life famed comedian who has lost his job hosting a prime time TV show after 12 seasons; and “Back to Life” (60’) is an inspiring docu-reality that follows the unique stories of patients and their families in a race against time while they wait for a lifesaving organ donation.
“Israeli content has been on the rise for several years with TV shows such as ‘Hostages,’ ‘Fauda’ and ‘Shtisel’ pioneering the world interest in Israeli content. IZZY’s most recent deal with Armoza Formats, licensing some of Israel’s best dramas from the past few years that have not yet been seen by audiences worldwide, is a great opportunity for IZZY subscribers in over 40 countries and for the creators of these shows to have the series showcased to new audiences outside of Israel,” commented Josh Hoffman, Founder of IZZY.
Sharon Levi, Head of Sales at Armoza Formats, added: “We are proud to continue to bring high-quality and creative Israeli content to viewers around the world through IZZY, this new and exciting platform. This is the perfect time to watch some of Israel’s leading dramas such as legal show ‘Red Lines’ and suspense cop series ‘Street Justice,’ as well as the hilarious ‘My Life in 60 Seconds’ and riveting docu-reality ‘Back to Life’”.
