Israeli streamer Izzy snags Armoza Studios scripted & docureality shows
Recently launched Israeli SVOD Izzy has picked up a raft of content from ITV Studios-owned Armoza Formats for its global subscribers.
Izzy, which focused on offering Israeli programming to viewers around there world, will stream the finished tapes of scripted dramas Allenby, Muna, Red Lines, and Street Justice as well as scripted comedy My Life In 60 Seconds and docu-reality Back To Life.
Allenby, created by Gadi Taub and Mosh Danon, is a psychological drama set in Tel Aviv, while eight-part Muna explores the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through the eyes of a successful and free-spirited Arab-Israeli photographer.
Also on the slate is drama Red Lines, which follows an up-and-coming attorney who believes in justice above all else, and comedy My Life In 60 Seconds, which is from Israel’s Reshet and Tedy Productions. The unscripted acquisitions include Back To Life, which was created by Reshet Media and Armoza Formats, and follows the unique stories of patients and their families in a race against time while they wait for a lifesaving organ donation.
Josh Hoffman, founder of Izzy, said: “Israeli content has been on the rise for several years with TV shows such as Hostages, Fauda and Shtisel pioneering the world interest in Israeli content. Izzy’s most recent deal with Armoza Formats, licensing some of Israel’s best dramas from the past few years that have not yet been seen by audiences worldwide, is a great opportunity for Izzy subscribers in over 40 countries and for the creators of these shows to have the series showcased to new audiences outside of Israel.”
