Israeli Comedy Bloody Murray Sells to ARTE


yes Studios’ comedy Bloody Murray has been picked up by ARTE, to launch as the renamed Dana & Murray on this week.

The show, which won 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 gynecologist, and Murray is a film lecturer specializing in romantic comedies.

Created and written by Stav Idisis, Bloody Murray has also previously been sold to CBC in Canada. A second season is in development with yes TV.

Sharon Levi, managing director at yes Studios, commented: “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.”
