Armoza to Launch The Surprise Teacher


Armoza Formats has unveiled the new factual-entertainment format The Surprise Teacher, which will be launched to the international market at MIPTV.

In the format, each week a new celebrity will surprise a class of high school students with a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The celebrity becomes their substitute teacher, giving them a master class that reflects the star’s passion and experiences.

Locally titled Il Supplente and created and produced by Palomar Productions, the show is set to air soon in Italy.

Carlo Degli Esposti, president of Palomar Productions, said: “Il Supplente is an original format which Palomar Entertainment is very proud of. It is new, different, and inspirational for the younger generations. We are convinced that the show will be watched by young adults with the desire to better understand the youthful universe, as well as by youngsters themselves. In our opinion, the format has great international potential. This is one of the reasons why we decided to entrust it to the experienced and professionalism of Armoza Formats, which will distribute it starting from this MIPTV.”

Avi Armoza, CEO of Armoza Formats, added: “We have seen the need for formats that can connect the younger age groups back to prime-time TV. The Surprise Teacher does so, by allowing a celebrity to share their passion and life experience in order to access the world of the younger generation. We are excited to team up with a creative force such as Palomar, to bring this format to MIPTV.”
