ICTV in Ukraine has licensed the scripted comedy format Cops on the Block from KABO International.

Cops on the Block is a Pick’n Mix scripted comedy format that revolves around the antics of a police captain and his motley crew of cops as they try to enforce law and order in their town. Produced by Thalie Images, a KABO Family company, and distributed worldwide by KABO International, Cops on the Block was commissioned by M6 in France.

“ICTV was looking for a new fresh hit in scripted comedy, and having successfully worked together in the past on other comedy formats, we felt Cops on the Block was the perfect format for our schedule and our audience,” commented Anastasiya Reznikova, the head of development of content at ICTV.

Arabelle Pouliot-Di Crescenzo, the managing director of KABO International, said, “With a solid reputation for long-running hit scripted series in France and over 80 writers in-house, comedy is one of KABO’s signature areas of expertise, and Cops on the Block is a fresh character-driven format that hits all the right universal comedic notes, as well as being one of our versatile Pick’n Mix formats, which has a strong appeal to buyers.”
