HaPijamot is an Israeli television sitcom about a struggling band determined to make it in the real world.
The show follows the misadventures of three childhood friends: Ilan, Kobi and Oded, as they move from Netanya to Tel Aviv to launch their band. Unlike many shows, the characters in the show are aware that they are on television; the show features their day-to-day lives. A major aspect of the show is "HaMasach HaLavan" (the white screen), where cast members talk to the viewers. Gary, Kobi's uncle, who own the "hamburgary", also talks to the viewers when he is alone in his Black screen, often complaining about his wife or just his life in general. There are several interactive episodes, such as an episode which the viewers can fast forward or rewind to decide the outcome of the episode, an episode in which the viewers can record ringtones, and an episode with a cheaper form of scratch-and-sniff. The show always ends with the "Shtifat Kelim" - the characters washing the dishes for Gary and summarize the episode
