Dori Media Group has picked up international sales rights to ViX original romcom Lalola, outside of the US and Latin America.

The company is distributing both the show, which debuted on Spanish-language streamer ViX last month, as well as the format rights.

Lalola, which is produced by Dori Media International, is a modern-day remake of the romantic comedy series that originally aired in 2008-2009. Dori Media International chief content officer Joshua Mintz and Ana Celia Urquidi are the show’s producers, while Francisco Franco Alba and Ana Lorena Pérez Ríos directed the series.

The series tells the story of how a successful man, who thinks he can use women to satisfy his ego, wakes up one day in the body of a woman. As he seeks to reverse this and return to his original body, he must also protect his job and relationships with his daughter, mother, and best friend.

“The highly anticipated return of Lalola has been met with open arms by both critics and ViX’s audience alike,” said Dori’s Palti. “Our new modern take on this beloved romantic comedy series is clearly resonating and we are now excited to offer these original Spanish-language episodes, as well as the format rights, to the rest of the international TV marketplace.”

Dori Media Group is an international group of media companies, located in Israel, Switzerland, Argentina, Spain and Singapore. The group produces and distributes TV and new media content, broadcasts various TV channels and operates video-content internet sites.
