Format | Tel Aviv | 03/10/2019

Armoza Formats, part of ITV Studios, has now unveiled its new slate for this MIPCOM, which features formats created both in Israel and internationally across a range of genres, and that are set to help connect people with those around them.

Developed and produced by Armoza Formats, Queens of Love (60’) is the outrageously entertaining show in which three fabulous drag queens come to the rescue of one hopeless single who has been looking for love in all the wrong places. Using their insights from both worlds, our marvelous mentors will pick her up for a night of fun and romance and together they will audition four potential suitors. The queens will cut through the nonsense of a first date and help her on her way to finding love, digging deep with their tough questions and making sure that all secrets are revealed. After each date, they will analyze, discuss and critique the suitor – holding nothing back in their attempt to find “Mr. Right”. At the end of the night, the queens will decide which man is the best fit, helping her break her bad dating streak once-and-for-all.

Single Parents Cruising (11x60’) is the new hit dating-reality format produced by Canada’s Zone 3 and aired on Canal Vie. Already commissioned for a second season, the series follows one single mom and one single dad as they set sail on a ten-day cruise for the chance to find love. Once on board, ten other single parent suitors will compete to sweep them off their feet. The contenders must overcome a range of challenges to gain alone time with each single parent. But it’s not as simple as just winning each other’s hearts… each parent is joined by their children and the suitors must win them over too as they try to find true love and create a united family.

Song of My Life (10x60’) is the studio entertainment format from Finland’s YLE and Yellow Film & TV in which viewers can discover the music that has changed the lives of their favorite celebrities. Four famous contestants will bring their one unforgettable song to the competition. The catch – no one knows whose song is whose. After each song has been performed live, the celebrities must try to uncover which of them is connected to it. As they analyze each other and the reactions to the performance, the players will do everything so as not to be exposed. And when the episode’s final notes have been played, the celebrities and the audience will learn the touching, fun and emotional stories behind each star’s song of their life.
I’ve Got Issues (30’) is the hilarious factual entertainment format from Nawi-Pro Creative in which a well-known comedian who “suffers” from a range of issues embarks on a comedic journey of self-discovery with which we can all identify. Each episode features the comedian addressing a different light-hearted issue using a support group to help them through it – from shopaholics and hypochondriacs to social media and sports addicts. Surrounded by people who understand and share their problem, our comedian will add their own brand of humor as every addict reveals their experience, exposing us to extreme, hilarious and relatable aspects of the issue. From group therapy to fieldwork and home visits, it all culminates in a humorous, hands-on challenge aimed at helping the participants overcome their issue.

From Armoza’s scripted offering comes Call Me If You Die (8x60’), the thriller from Canada’s TVA and Zone 3. After an extended police mission in Thailand, Jean-François is forced back to Montreal, leaving behind the life he has built there in order to return to the city he’s been avoiding for 30 years. Back in his hometown, JF is made a lieutenant on a major operation to bring down the Italian Mafia – forcing him to confront Mario, his lifelong best friend and a high-ranking mafioso. Torn between their jobs and their friendship, JF and Mario enter a dangerous game of double-dealing, hiding their connection from their colleagues and accomplices. As the mafia increasingly wreaks havoc on the streets of Montreal and the investigation heats up, the two will struggle to help each other and preserve their strong bond, though it threatens their lives.
