Dori Media Group (“DMG”, “the Company”) announces that it has sold its hit romantic comedy format “Ciega a Citas (Blind Date)” to the TV3 channel in Lithuania, part of the Modern Times Group (MTG). TV3 will produce its own version of the show, which is slated to air in the second half of 2016. This will be the 7th version of the Argentinean format “Ciega a Citas” produced worldwide, following adaptations in Spain, Chile, Germany, Russia, Poland and China.
Modern Times Group is an international entertainment group, with operations spanning six continents including TV channels and online platforms, content production and distribution businesses, radio stations, multi-channel networks (MCN) and eSports. This is the first local adaptation of an Argentinean scripted show MTG have purchased, not only in Lithuania but in any territory in which MTG produces local programmes for its TV channels (Scandinavia, Czech Republic, Bulgaria, the Baltic countries, Ghana and Tanzania).
“Ciega a Citas” tells the story of Lucía, a woman who overhears her mother making a bet with her younger sister that she won’t be able to bring a real boyfriend to her sister’s wedding. Lucía sets out to find a genuine loving boyfriend, knowing all too well that she has only 258 days at her disposal until her sister’s wedding day.
Nadav Palti, CEO & President of Dori Media Group commented: “Ciega a Citas” is a truly international hit, being shown in over 40 territories. This relatable and versatile romantic comedy appeals to a wide range of audiences all over the world and has had excellent audience ratings in its markets – we are sure that Lithuania will be no different.”
