Israeli format developer and distributor Armoza Formats and Nordisk Film TV have entered into a partnership to bring the comic fact-ent format The Gran Plan to Scandinavia.

The Nordic production network will craft local versions for the Scandinavian region of the format, originally produced by Artza Productions for Israel’s Channel 10 and featuring a trio of grandmothers that offers advice to young people regarding everything from dating to unhealthy addictions and career struggles.

“The Gran Plan is one of the strongest formats at MIPTV and instantly created a buzz,” said Peter Hansen, CCO of Nordisk Film TV, in a statement. “Nordisk Film TV is looking forward to setting the outspoken grannies loose in their Nordic territories.”

“This show injects a fresh lease of life into the coaching format and we are particularly excited to be working with Nordisk Film TV,” added Armoza Formats CEO Avi Armoza.
