Israeli sitcom about interracial marriage wins International Emmy

An Israeli comedy series about the marriage between an Ethiopian Jewish man and an Ashkenazi Jewish woman won an International Emmy Award.

“Nevsu,” a term of endearment in the Ethiopian language of Amharic, won Monday night for best comedy in ceremonies held in New York. The show airs on the commercial Reshet Channel 13.

It became the first Israeli show to include a black lead character on a primetime show when it debuted last year. In the show, the couple have a 5-year-old daughter.
