Dori Media Group has signed a multi-territory agreement with Warner Bros. International Television Production (WBITVP) for four different local remakes of the crime drama Dumb.

Per the deal with WBITVP, Dumb will see local versions in France, Belgium, the Netherlands and Spain. The series has had three seasons in Israel and a successful German remake, Rampensau.

Nadav Palti, CEO and president of Dori Media Group, commented: “Following the huge success of the original format in Israel, as well as the ratings success of German format Rampensau, we believe the format will work very well in Warner’s four chosen territories and in many more territories in the future.”

The crime drama is about a stoned and frustrated 30-year old actress who is stuck with the body and appearance of a teenager and hates it. All she has is her boyfriend, who later dumps her and gets arrested for dealing drugs. Determined to save him, she joins the police as an undercover agent posing as a high school student. Blinded by love and power, she soon crosses the line becoming the new target of investigation. In way over her head, playing the role of her life, she realizes for the first time that she is not, in fact, dumb.
