Juma brings Israeli ‘Ring’ to States

Reality series features couples dealing with marital woes

Another Israeli format could be coming to U.S. shores.

Juma Entertainment has picked up Stateside rights to reality skein “With This Ring” from Tel Aviv-based development and distribution shingle Armoza Formats.

“With This Ring,” now in its third season on Israeli TV, features three couples attempting to overcome their marital woes. The show’s twist is that the host is the only point of contact between the couples and therapist. Viewers watch the couples interacting with this host and the host interacting with the therapist, but the couples and therapist never meet.

Robert Horowitz, Lewis Fenton and Avi Armoza are set as exec producers.

Showtime’s highly rated series “Homeland” was based on the Israeli program “Hatufim”; fellow pay cabler HBO got three seasons out of psychiatrist drama “In Treatment,” based on Israel’s “BeTipul” and NBC is currently running episodes of Israeli gameshow import “Who’s Still Standing?”
