Through a new deal with Warner Bros. International TV Production, the Dori Media series will get its own local versions in Spain, France, Belgium and the Netherlands.
Dori Media Group announced that it has agreed a multi-territory agreement with Warner Bros. International Television Production (WBITVP) for four different local market remakes of crime drama format Dumb in France, Belgium, Netherlands and Spain. Each territory will work on its own local version.
The Dumb format, which consists of 3 seasons, continues to gain major industry recognition. Its third series recently won the best Daily Drama at the Israeli TV Awards held in April, emulating the success of the first two seasons which were also awarded the prize.
In addition to recently being nominated for “Best Series” in the Quotenmeter.de awards, with specific nominations also for individual cast members, “Rampensau”, the German remake, has also been selected as a finalist in C21 Best Scripted Format category in this year’s International Format Awards.
All 3 seasons of Dumb reached top 3 status on Israel’s HOT, gaining incredibly high results in the process. 46% of HOT’s subscribers have now watched the series, leading to more than 20 million Video on demand views.
Nadav Palti, CEO & President of Dori Media Group commented: “Following the huge success of the original format in Israel, as well as the ratings success of German format Rampensau, we believe the format will work very well in Warner’s four chosen territories and in many more territories in the future.”
Dumb is a crime drama about a stoned and frustrated 30-year old actress who is stuck with the body and appearance of a teenager and hates it. She sees herself as dumb, leading a mundane life, without friends or dreams. All she has is her boyfriend, who later dumps her and gets arrested for dealing drugs. Determined to save him, she joins the police as an undercover agent posing as a high-school senior class student.
Blinded by love and power, she soon crosses the line becoming the new target of investigation. In way over her head, playing the role of her life, she realizes for the first time that she is not, in fact, dumb.
