Israel’s Keshet International (KI) has unveiled its largest ever slate ahead of Mipcom next month, led by adventure reality format Welcome to the Wild.
The first season of the format, produced by Abot Hameriri Productions for Keshet Broadcasting in Israel, sent contestants on a journey down the Amazon, challenging them to fight for survival. A second run has already been ordered by the Israeli broadcaster.
Also on the unscripted slate for the Cannes market is Woodcut Media’s Holloway: Women Behind Bars, which tells the story of the most notorious female inmates at London’s Holloway Prison, plus Koda Communications’ workplace docudramas Residents and Blue, which explore hospitals and police stations respectively.
Keshet’s scripted offerings include newspaper-based crime drama The Paper from Croatia, and fantasy thriller The Fare to Adir Miller’s (Traffic Light) from Brazilian prodco Moonshot Picture in association with Sony Pictures Television Networks.
Female detective series Clues, from Israel’s Artza Productions for Keshet Broadcasting, is also on KI’s slate.
Keren Shahar, KI chief operating officer and president of distribution, said the company had “put a premium on platform-agnostic content, looking outside of the traditional linear television universe to the digital sphere to find exceptional projects.”
Shows resulting from this approach include multiplatform brand #TheFeed, which is from OmerTV and Erez Dan Productions and creates a culinary travel guide driven by social media photos of the world’s gastronomy.
