More overseas love for Everybody Loves Raymond. Sony Pictures Television is announcing at MIPTV today that it has sold local-language versions of the hit CBS comedy in Israel and Poland. Poland’s TVN has ordered 30 episodes and Israel’s Reshet has picked up 33 episodes to be jointly produced by Sony TV. The sales follow the success of Sony’s first international version of Raymond in Russia, where The Voronins (Воронины) has reached 210 episodes on CTC network, matching the series’ U.S. run, and is the country’s No. 1 comedy. Raymond creator Phil Rosenthal chronicled his experience of helping develop The Voronins in the feature documentary Exporting Raymond, which is being released April 29. Additionally, Sony remade all 250 U.S. episodes of Married … With Children for Russia’s TNT and is now working on 100 new original episodes of the show for the Russian network.
