Armoza Places Back to Life in the U.S.

Armoza Formats’ new docu-reality show Back to Life has been licensed by American production company Shed Media for adaptation in the U.S.

Back to Life looks on as medical patients and their families wait for a lifesaving organ donation. The hour-long show was originally created for Channel 10 in Israel, where it is due to debut next month. It has also secured local treatments in Germany, Italy and Poland.

Pam Healey, the general manager of Shed Media, which is part of Warner Bros. Unscripted and Alternative Media, remarked: “I’m thrilled Shed will play a role in revealing the intimate and courageous journeys that so many patients and their families embark on. Most people don’t realize the scale of the efforts and the pressure the patients are faced with until they are in a position to make the difficult decisions themselves. I know this firsthand since my father received a life-saving heart transplant in 1996.”

Avi Armoza, the CEO of Armoza Formats, added: “Back to Life is an incredibly important format as it raises awareness for a very emotional and relevant issue. This is an opportunity for content creators to make a real change and we believe that Shed Media is the right partner to do so in the United States.”
