The Malevolent Bride (8×45’) is due to begin filming in Israel later this year and is the first collaboration between A+E and Ananey.

A+E Studios will coproduce and distribute the series in all territories outside of Israel.

The Malevolent Bride follows the hunt for a vengeful spirit terrorising an unsuspecting Hasidic community in present-day Jerusalem, when a pair of unlikely demon hunters join forces to uncover the secret behind the malevolent spirit’s origins.

The Malevolent Bride is created, written and executive produced by Noah Stollman, Avigail Ben-Dor Niv and Oded Davidoff, who will also serve as director.

Barry Jossen and Tana Jamieson are executive producers for A+E Studios, with Orly-Atlas Katz and Osnat Saraga exec producers for Ananey Studios.

Lenore Entertainment Group’s Adam Berkowitz brokered the deal between A+E Studios and Ananey and is also exec producing.

Jossen, president and head of A+E Studios, said: “We are thrilled to be partnering with Ananey to produce The Malevolent Bride, the first local-language production for A+E Studios outside of North America.

“As we continue our rapid growth, it is our goal to produce high-quality series for designated primary markets that will also appeal to worldwide audiences. Great storytelling knows no limits. We are identifying the best projects anywhere in the world with creative attributes that include dynamic settings, stories and characters.”
