“Rampensau”, the German version of “Dumb” has also been nominated for “Best Series” in the Quotenmeter.de awards, with Jasna Fritzi Bauer also nominated for “Best lead actress in a series”.

Nadav Palti, CEO & President of Dori Media Group commented: “During these unprecedented times, it’s a terrific achievement that that the Israeli TV Awards even took place, and I would like to congratulate the organisers for their immense efforts in ensuring that the celebration of the industry’s hard work and creativity was held, albeit in an empty auditorium.
“It is a pleasure to be able to provide entertainment during such difficult times and to that end I am delighted that having gained more than 20 million VOD views in Israel that the Dumb format continues to entertain. Rampensau is clearly proving to be popular in Germany and it is also pleasing to see that it has been produced with such a top-quality cast. The role of entertainment is evolving further, and in many ways has become more important. We will continue to develop award winning entertainment for our clients and the public at large and with our very diverse and popular library, we remain well positioned to succeed.”
“Dumb/Rampensau” is a crime drama about a stoned and frustrated 30-year old actress who is stuck with the body and appearance of a teenager and hates it. She sees herself as dumb, leading a mundane life, without friends or dreams. All she has is her boyfriend, who later dumps her and gets arrested for dealing drugs. Determined to save him, she joins the police as an undercover agent posing as a high-school senior class student. Blinded by love and power, she soon crosses the line becoming the new target of investigation. In way over her head, playing the role of her life, she realizes for the first time that she is not, in fact, dumb.
