KAN Recommissions July August’s Comedy Checkout!


Israeli pubcaster KAN has commissioned a second season of the scripted comedy Checkout! from July August Productions, a Red Arrow Studios company.

Locally titled Cash Register, the comedy gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the clash of cultures and characters in a dysfunctional supermarket in a central district of Israel, following the daily lives of the staff and customers.

The show’s first season aired on Channel 10. Season two’s 20 half-hour episodes will begin shooting in August for its late 2019 premiere.

Red Arrow Studios International distribute the finished tape and scripted format of Checkout! worldwide.

Amit Stretiner, managing director of July August Productions, said: “We are delighted that KAN has recommissioned our comedy series for another season. The first series was more successful than we ever imagined, and it will be great to bring back our family of characters and introduce some new supermarket employees and customers.”

Tal Fraifeld, KAN’s VP of programming, added: “We are always looking for comedy series that resonate with our audiences and appeal to a wide cross-section of ages. Checkout! does that beautifully—with a universal, everyday setting that lends itself to a host of comedy characters. We are delighted to bring the show back for a second season.”
