The German adaptation of Nevsu will air on ZDF

German pubcaster ZDF has commissioned a local adaptation of Endemol Shine Israel’s fictional comedy series Nevsu.

German prodco Neuesuper will work on the local version, titled I Don’t Work Here, for ZDFneo.

The family comedy format revolves around young multiracial couple Dawit and Laura and their daughter. The pair are battling living with Laura’s parents and facing huge scrutiny from her mother-in-law. The series explores culture clashes, generational frustrations and everyday racism with humour.

The German adaptation will be directed by Arman Riahi and written by Romina Ecker and Malina Nnendi Nwabuonwor.

Created by Shay Ben Atar, Yossi Wassa, Liat Shavit and Gal Zaid, and produced by Endemol Shine Israel for Reshet 13, the International Emmy Award-winning show first premiered in 2017 and has since aired a second season.

The company is also behind premium scripted titles such as Queens, Fifty and Valley of Tears, as well as non-scripted titles including Big Brother.
