Two titles from the Armoza Formats catalog are heading to Finland and Russia.

Finnish broadcaster MTV3 has commissioned The Gran Plan (pictured), a series based on Armoza Formats’ factual entertainment format.

Produced in partnership with Banijay Finland, the show stars a trio of grandmother life coaches who help young people tackle everything from first-date jitters to career struggles. “They bridge the generation gap in their own hilarious way and force their young protégées to move on with their lives,” the company said in a release.

The show launched on Israel’s Channel 10 and Switzerland’s TeleZueri and TV24.

Russia’s REN TV has also acquired The Gran Plan and is in production on a local version. The network has also acquired the competitive fact ent format That’s My House from Armoza in which three people claim to live in a home and a contestant must figure out which one is the real resident.
