Brazil’s Globosat has now licensed two hit dramas from Armoza Formats scripted catalogue. The largest multichannel cable and satellite TV service in Latin America and Brazil has commissioned the ready-mades of Hostages and Street Justice, to air as part of a special focus on Israel this month.
Globosat is currently airing the first seasons of both dramas and will continue with the second season of Hostages, as well as the second and third season of Street Justice, while also streaming the finished tapes on their online platform.
Hostages has been acquired and adapted in over 20 countries to date including on the UK’s BBC4 and France’s Canal+, while Street Justice has had 3 successful seasons on Israel’s Channel 10 as their highest rated drama.
Hostages (60’) follows a renowned surgeon who is unwittingly thrown into a political conspiracy when she is ordered to sabotage a routine operation on the President, or her family will die. The intrigue continues with a second hit season of intense psychological drama, as we follow the officer who held Dr. Danon’s family hostage and abducted the Prime Minister to save his wife. Produced by Yetzira Ivrit, the original Israeli series won Best International Drama TV Series and Best Outstanding Actress at Monte Carlo TV Festival.
