An Israeli TV show about an interracial family was nominated on Thursday for an International Emmy Award. The Reshet comedy Nevsu, which was first broadcast in 2017, was nominated in the comedy category. The show will be competing against comedies from Mexico, Spain and Canada. Nevsu, which is an Amharic slang world for sweetheart, focuses on the marriage of Gili, an Israeli man of Ethiopian descent and Tamar, an Ashkenazi woman - and their corresponding families. Last year, Fox announced it was remaking the series for US audiences and titling it Culture Clash. While a pilot for the show was filmed, it was ultimately not picked up by the network. While Nevsu was the only Israeli nominee on Thursday, it was not the only Israel-inspired one. The Dutch production Etgar Keret: Based on a True Story, was recognized in the arts programming category. The 2017 film was a hybrid documentary of the Israeli writer's life, and his stories, which appear in animated versions sprinkled throughout the film. Israel has won very few awards from the International Emmys, which have been around since 1973. Israel has only won three prizes in the history of the awards. In 2013, the best documentary award went to 5 Broken Cameras, an Israeli-Palestinian film about Palestinian protests in Bil'in, which was nominated as a French film. In 2010, Israeli TV show Ramzor (Traffic Light) won in the best comedy series category, and in 2000, the film Kapo, produced in conjunction with Germany, took the best documentary film award.Winners of the 2018 International Emmys will be announced on November 19 in New York.
