Dori Media (Israel), the distribution and producer arm of the Israel-based content Dori Media Group, has had an interesting year in terms of partnerships, highlighting key sales of its titles and production agreements with leading companies.
Dori Media Group‘s acquisition of Sony Pictures Television‘s stake in Dori TLV, allows it to take full control over it, so it will handle the entire line up of Israeli channels and operations, including two drama channels, VIVA and VIVA Plus, which are broadcast by all Israeli multichannel platforms and the new one launched in April, Viva Vintage, which is broadcast by the two main local platforms, HOT and YES. DMG also operates an AVOD service, offering daily dramas to Israeli surfers through viva.walla.com.
While Dori Media closed a co-production deal with WarnerMedia for four different local market versions of the Dumb crime drama format in France, Belgium, the Netherlands and Spain. Each territory will have its local version.
Another of the company’s highlights is the recent sale of its drama Normal to WarnerMedia Latin America, with which the series will premiere on HBO Max and will be available in English, Spanish and Portuguese.
At Virtual Screenings Worldwide 2021, the company presents the Power Couple format, an international and successful prime time reality format where 8 couples move into a one villa for 6 weeks and each week they’ll have to face extreme challenges that will test how well they really know each other.
Also Da Next, an innovative grass-root digital-first talent competition, dedicated to young viewers, where mentors and influencers encourage their fans to audition on Instagram, YouTube and Tik Tok. Two teams of six are chosen to work with a mentor and record a song. Once the recordings are shared on social media, contestants, mentors, influencers and fans race towards the grand finale, to earn the most digital engagement and win the competition.
