Crossposted from Haaretz

The Israeli hit sitcom “Ramzor” (“Traffic Light”) won Monday night the International Emmy award for best comedy at the award ceremony in New York. This follows the hit show’s earlier coup of having rights for an American version bought by the Fox television network.

“Ramzor” was submitted as a candidate by Keshet, the franchisee that airs it on Channel 2 television. It was selected as a contender by a panel of 700 judges from 50 countries.

The show was chosen out of 39 nominees running for ore than 10 different categories, as presented by the International Academy of Television Arts and Sciences in the U.S.
