News Image
ITV Studios has announced the expansion of Armoza Formats with its new production company, Armoza Productions.

The Israeli-based content creators and distributors will now serve as the production arm of ITV Studios within Israel, producing all ITV Studios content in the future.

The production company is already attached to produce the new season of ITV Studios’s global hit format Come Dine With Me in Israel for Kan 11, the public broadcaster.

Lital Berenfeld Levi has also joined the team as Head of Production to spearhead this new line of business. Lital was previously with Endemol Shine Israel, where she served as the Head of Non-Scripted Productions. Between 2002-2017, she worked as the lead producer and executive producer on multiple programs across a wide variety of genres.

This new step follows Armoza Formats becoming part of ITV Studios under Managing Director of International Production Lisa Perrin. The Israeli company will continue to work closely with Mike Beale, Managing Director of ITV Studios’ Global Creative Network.

Avi Armoza, CEO of Armoza Formats, said: "We are always looking for ways to move the company forward, and since becoming part of ITV Studios, this was the next natural step in our integration. With Lital, who brings her knowledge of production and of the Israeli industry, leading the team, we look forward to bringing ITV Studios’ wide variety of creative content to Israeli audiences starting with Come Dine With Me."

Lisa Perrin, Managing Director, International Production, ITV Studios, said: "I know how creative the Israeli market is right now and with Armoza Productions becoming our production arm in Israel, this gives the opportunity for us to develop, produce and travel more formats from Israel, but also to bring more of our catalogue to life for the Israeli viewers."
