La Famiglia Scores First International Deal


TEL AVIV: The new scripted comedy La Famiglia, distributed by Armoza Formats, has been acquired by Avanti Ciné Vidéo for a remake in French-Canada in its first international deal.

Produced by United Studios Israel, La Famiglia is a half-hour sitcom that has been commissioned for a sophomore season by Channel 10 in Israel. The show follows a normal suburban family with as many reasons to be happy as to go to therapy. The therapy sessions in each episode offer flashbacks to the comical standalone scenes from the family members’ daily lives.

Avi Armoza, the CEO of Armoza Formats, said, “La Famiglia is a laugh-out-loud comedy that is ideal for family viewing. Its unique method of storytelling through the couple’s therapy adds an extra layer of humor and brings every family’s day-to-day issues to life in a way that we can all relate to. We are thrilled to see it taken in French-Canada with Avanti Ciné Vidéo, who have the expertise to remake this show perfectly for their territory.”

Efrat Dror, co-CEO of United Studios of Israel, added, “We are very excited and happy about the international launch of our latest comedy La Famiglia, a funny, relevant and universal series with a unique concept. We are confident that the deal with Avanti Ciné Vidéo is just the first of many.”
