Phil Rosenthal created one of the most successful sitcoms of all-time, Everybody Loves Raymond. He was a bona-fide expert in his craft. And then.. the Russians called. In the hilarious Exporting Raymond, a genuine fish-out-of-water comedy that could only exist in real life, Phil travels to Russia to help adapt his beloved sitcom for Russian television. The Russians don't share his tastes. They don't share his sense of humor. But what Phil did discover was a real comedy, filled with unique characters and situations that have to be seen to be believed.
EXPORTING RAYMOND tells the hilarious, warm and intimate journey of one man - considered an expert in his country having created one of the most popular television shows of all time - who travels to a foreign land to help people who don't seem to want his help.
When Rosenthal joins forces with Hollywood studio Sony Pictures Television to recreate "Everybody Loves Raymond" for Russian TV audiences as "The Voronins," he finds himself lost in Moscow, lost in his mission, lost in translation. Rosenthal tries to connect with his Russian colleagues but runs into unique characters and situations that conspire to drive him insane.
