Banijay Finland, part of the Banijay Nordic Group, has acquired the docu-reality series The Virgins (pictured) from Israeli producer-distributor Armoza Formats.
Each episode of the 60-minute series will focus on three ordinary individuals with diverse backgrounds who are undertaking first-time experiences. The series will follow people as they embark on such life-changing journeys as flying, seeing and “feeling whole” for the first time.
Armoza has also sold the program, which launched at Cannes’ MIPCOM market this week, into a number of presently undisclosed European territories. Israel’s Channel 10 has also commissioned the series.
“The Virgins is an inspiring and emotional docu-reality that allows viewers to share in the life-changing moments of all types of new experiences,” said Avi Armoza, CEO of Armoza Formats, in a statement. “Viewers are looking for authentic people with real and relatable stories and this show brings them exactly this.”
