TNT Brazil, a Turner Broadcasting System TV channel specialised in movies and TV series, has now licensed Armoza Formats’ gritty drama series Allenby. TNT Brazil’s adaptation of Allenby will mark their first large-scale original Brazilian production and will comprise an 8-episode season, locally known as Rua Augusta, after a major street in Sao Paulo known for its intense nightlife. The adaptation has a planned air date of late 2015, with production set to start in the beginning of 2015.

Previously aired on Israel’s Channel 10, Allenby (produced by Inosan Productions) was created by Gadi Taub and is based on his best-selling novel. With viewership on Israel’s Channel 10 reaching 84% above average share, it was also a hit with local critics who heralded the show as “socially relevant and highly compelling”.
