Israeli format developer and distributor Armoza Formats’ dating show Guys in Disguise (pictured) has been acquired by ProSiebenSat.1 Germany and France’s Newen Group.

The MIPCOM-launched format - developed by Armoza and Artza Productions - pairs a woman with two secret admirers who are in full disguise until eventually revealing themselves to her. ProSieben, which is in partnership with Endemol Germany, has begun production on the format, which will be hosted by actor Palina Rojinski and air this June.

Guys in Disguise is a brilliantly funny take on the dating genre,” said Avi Armoza, CEO of Armoza Formats, in a statement. “This format enables the participants to actually go on a date together, while still keeping the element of appearances hidden. It’s a comedic format that works to take people looking for love out of their comfort zone.”
