Those kibbutzes are bastions of creativity, we’re telling you. Or maybe it’s the co-ed army:
Fox Buys Male Buddy Comedy Based On Israeli Format With John Wells Producing – by Nellie Andreeva
Fox has bought Hard-Up, a single-camera comedy project executive produced by John Wells . Based on the Israeli series Asfur, created by Hanan Savyon and Guy Amir, Hard Up is a comedy about four twentysomething, cash-strapped close friends willing to do anything for each other — especially if it means breaking the rules as they fight against the odds to keep their home in a gentrifying neighborhood.
The Fox version, which has received a script commitment, will be written by Etan Frankel (Shameless)…. John Wells Prods and Warner Bros TV are producing. Savyon and Amir are repped by ADD’s Hadas Mozes.
Hey, it’s no HOMELAND, but what is? (Gotta wonder how many people who love HOMELAND know it’s based on an Israeli series…and if they’d still watch once they did know. Or is anti-semitism just a myth, like the Holocaust?)
