The CW Buys Time Travel Musical Based On Israeli Format With Mark Harmon Producing

EXCLUSIVE: The CW has bought Danny Hollywood, an hourlong project based on the successful Israeli half-hour series of the same name. Easy A writer Bert V Royal is writing the adaptation and is executive producing with Mark Harmon, Eric & Kim Tannenbaum and Martha Haight for CBS TV Studios. In the time travel fantasy-musical, a young documentary filmmaker travels back in time in order to prevent the death of her ’90s musical idol Danny Hollywood, and finds that the story is even more complicated than she thought. In the original, created and produced by Tmira Yardeni and Ori Gross, the 21st century documentary filmmaker travels back to 1968. The series aired 200 episodes on Yes Stars channel, more than tripping the channel’s average viewership over its run and garnering a 12% market share — six times the channel average — for its finale. (You can watch a trailer here.) Danny Hollywood is distributed internationally by Armoza Formats, whose game show format Still Standing became NBC’s new series Who’s Still Standing?, which premieres December 19. (more…)
