Armoza’s OVO gets first deal in Germany
OVO, Israeli indie creator and distributor Armoza Formats’ new emotional factual entertainment format, has been taken in Germany by Good Times.
This agreement marks the first deal for the format, as well as the first time that the German production company and the Israeli independent have partnered.
During each season of OVO, an egg-shaped “confession booth” is placed in 10 different city centers. Participants who enter the booth can share intimate stories and feelings. In what is meant to be a calm and private space, OVO will ask questions and listen to what the people of each city have to say.
