Endemol pact covers five territories; U.K. and Germany to come

Israel’s Keshet Intl. has inked a deal with Endemol for the format rights to the comedy series “Dear Neighbors, Help Our Daughter Find Love” in five territories.

Deal covers Netherlands, Italy, Spain, India and Turkey. Keshet, home of the series that was remade by Showtime as “Homeland,” recently struck deals for the “Deear Neighbors” format with Shine France and Shine Australia, and its in the midst of negotiating pacts for the U.K. and Germany.

Using a docu-style approach, “Dear Neighbors” follows a small-town couple each week who recruit community members to help find a match for their single daughter or son now living in the big city. Pilot for the show racked up big numbers in its airing on Keshet in May. Additional segs are now in production.
