Broadcasters in India and Estonia have commissioned local versions of Armoza Formats’ factual format Connected (pictured).

India’s ZEE TV has commissioned 65 episodes of the show, which will begin airing daily on Sunday (June 2). The series will follow six Indian women, including a lesbian and LGBT activist, whose self-filmed journeys through life become thematically interconnected as the series goes on.

In Estonia, Kanal 2 has commissioned a 30-episode season that is now in production.

Elsewhere in the world, Israel’s HOT TV has ordered a fifth season of the show to be produced by KODA Productions and Finland’s SUB channel recently finished airing a second season. The format has also aired in Denmark on DR2, Norway’s TV Norge-FEM, the Netherlands’ NED3 and Ukraine’s 1+1.

The self-filmed format follows five people who do not know each other but whose lives gradually become thematically connected over the course of a year.
