Armoza to Introduce Swedish Comedy in Cannes


At MIPTV, Armoza Formats is slated to showcase Sunday League, a new Swedish scripted comedy that the company has just added to its catalog.

Sunday League follows an inexperienced football coach as she becomes responsible for leading the worst team in the lowest league. The show, which is produced by Anagram, marks the first Swedish series to be represented by Armoza Formats. It is due to debut soon on Sweden’s TV3.

Erik Magnusson, producer, remarked: “Sunday League has a high-end feel that appeals to a broad audience, and the funny, sweet and absurd comedy leaves the viewer happy, entertained and longing for the next episode.”

Avi Armoza, the CEO of Armoza Formats, added: “More and more, we are seeing that the market for strong scripted content from around the world is expanding at a very fast rate. Scandinavia has become a leading provider of scripted comedy and because of this, as well as the high production value, we believe that Sunday League is a great addition to our MIP lineup, as well as our scripted catalog.”
