La Famiglia has been making headlines worldwide due to its international travel. The original Israeli series has aired three successful seasons on Channel 10 and Reshet 13. A second season of the Cypriot adaptation recently aired on Alpha TV with a 3rd season already commissioned. Mind the Malhotras, the adaptation of the format in India, began streaming on Amazon Prime Video in 2019.
Developed and produced by United Studios of Israel and created by Ran Dovrat, Avi Belkin and Ohad Perach, La Famiglia (45x30’) follows the lives of a perfectly normal suburban family living in the divorce capital of the country. With many reasons to be happy, they have even more reasons to go to therapy – their sex life, his best friend, her complaints, and of course, his mother. Their therapy sessions provide the entertaining basis for the series, through which we flashback to the comical, stand-alone scenes from their daily life. Each episode is a new therapy session in which they bring up the most embarrassing, bizarre, awkward and insane moments that are a part of every family’s life.
George Pofantis, Chief Content Officer of Antenna Greece, “Antenna is very keen to include ‘La Famiglia’ in our schedule. It is a comedy that touches on real, everyday subjects and we are certain that it will appeal to the Greek audience. It is a great addition to our comedy schedule.”
Salome Peillon, Senior Sales Director of Western & Southern Europe, CEE, CIS & French-Speaking Canada at Armoza Formats, “While we can’t currently travel, our formats are still traveling all over the world and what’s better these days than a hilarious family comedy that everyone can relate to, no matter the country. Following the success of the format in Israel, India and Cyprus, we look forward to seeing these new adaptations of "La Famiglia' in Russia and Greece.”
