Two of Red Arrow’s shows have been nominated for 2019 International Emmy® Awards.
Checkout! (Kupa Rashit), produced by July August Productions for KAN Israel, has been nominated for a Best Comedy award.
Falco, based on the scripted format The Last Cop which is distributed by Red Arrow Studios International, has been nominated for a Best Non-English Language U.S. Primetime Program award. Falco is produced by Spiral International and Dynamo for Amazon.
The International Emmy® Awards are organized by the International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, and winners will be announced at a black-tie ceremony on November 25, 2019 at the Hilton New York Hotel.
Checkout! (21 x 24′) was recommissioned by KAN, Israel’s public broadcaster, in February for a second season, following a successful first season that saw ratings of more than 30% above the average on Channel 10, the show’s original home. Season Two is currently in production, for a 2019 premiere.
Red Arrow Studios International distribute the finished tape and scripted format of Checkout! worldwide.
The comedy is a behind-the-scenes look at the clash of cultures and characters in a dysfunctional supermarket in a central district of Israel. Each episode follows the daily lives of the store’s crazy staff and equally eccentric customers.
Falco (15 x 1 hour) is a Mexican adaptation of Red Arrow Studios International’s hit crime format The Last Cop, and has been sold to networks including Amazon Prime Video for Latin America, NBCUniversal’s Telemundo for the US, and Turner’s TNT Latin America.
Falco is produced by Spiral International and production powerhouse Dynamo (Narcos, American Made), and features Michel Brown, star of the International Emmy® award winning series Sr. Ávila, in the lead role. The series is showrun and directed by acclaimed Mexican filmmaker, director and screenwriter Ernesto Contreras (Blue Eyelids, I Dream in Another Language, The Obscure Spring, El Chapo), who has a total of 19 International Film Festival wins and 9 nominations.
In Falco, it’s 1994 in Mexico City, and Alejandro Falco is a reputable policeman with a promising future and a young family. However, his perfect world is shattered when he is shot by a mysterious attacker in the line of duty. With a bullet lodged in his head, Falco falls into a coma – for the next 24 years. He awakens in 2018 with no memory of what happened, and to a world he doesn’t recognize – including the internet and mobile phones! But far more devastating is the news that his wife has remarried, and the baby daughter he once knew is now a grown woman.
The only thing he has left is his job, and Falco must find a way to start over and rebuild his life. But he just can’t let it go; he has lost too much to not try and find out who did this to him. One way or another, he is going to get answers – and when he does, someone is going to pay.
