First International Deal For La Famiglia
The new scripted comedy La Famiglia has now been picked up in French Canada by Avanti Ciné Vidéo, marking the first international pickup of the new sitcom. Produced by United Studios Israel and distributed by Armoza Formats, La Famiglia aired on Israel’s Channel 10, raising the channel’s ratings by 31% in the time slot, and has been commissioned for a 2nd season.
The new hilarious Israeli comedy, La Famiglia (30 x 30’) follows the lives of a perfectly normal 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.
Efrat Dror, Co-CEO of United Studios of Israel, “We are very excited and happy about the international launch of our latest comedy ‘La Famiglia’, a funny, relevant and universal series with a unique concept. We are confident that the deal with Avanti Ciné Vidéo is just the first of many.”
Avi Armoza, CEO of Armoza Formats, “‘La Famiglia’ is a laugh-out-loud comedy that is ideal for family viewing. Its unique method of story-telling through the couple’s therapy adds an extra layer of humor and brings every family’s day-to-day issues to life in a way that we can all relate to. We are thrilled to see it taken in French Canada with Avanti Ciné Vidéo, who have the expertise to remake this show perfectly for their territory.”
