Armoza Formats Scores La Famiglia Adaptation in Georgia


Georgian Public Broadcaster has ordered an adaptation of the Armoza Formats scripted comedy format La Famiglia.

The series follows the lives of a perfectly normal suburban family that attends therapy sessions together. Each episode centers on a new session. The first season of the Georgian adaptation, produced by West Vector Production, will feature 30 episodes.

The original La Famiglia was developed and produced by United Studios of Israel and created by Ran Dovrat, Avi Belkin and Ohad Perach.

More than 350 episodes of the format have been commissioned around the world. A second season in India is set to begin airing on Prime Video this week. Other adaptations are produced in Austria, Cyprus, Russia and Greece.

Tina Berdzenishvili, director general of the Georgian Public Broadcaster, said, “At GPB, we cherish not only the popularity of the content but also the values and diversity it can bring to viewers—and that is why we chose La Famiglia. The show will be adapted to fit our Georgian reality, family dynamics and lifestyle for our audience. The product will be filmed by the West Vector Production studio, commissioned by GPB, as it is our aim to promote the development of the local creative industry. We are looking forward to going on-air and anticipate the show to become a favorite amongst Georgian viewers.”

“Every household in the world has some dynamics in common—which is why this lighthearted show is so relatable to viewers from any country,” added Elizaveta Makarova, sales executive for CEE, CIS and Latin Europe at Armoza Formats. “I am very excited that Georgia has joined our ‘La Famiglia,’ and I am sure they will add a wonderful, local twist to this hilarious sitcom.”
