Keshet International stocks foreign-language drama for Mipcom

French-language thriller Blue Moon

Israeli distributor Keshet International (KI) has unveiled its Autumn 2021 slate, headlined by several newly acquired foreign-language dramas.

First up is Blue Moon (30×60’), a French-language thriller series made for Quebecois streamer Club Illico. After a woman inherits her father’s security firm, she has to face up to the reality that its activity has been less than legal. The crime procedural is produced by Montreal’s Aetios Productions, with Keshet holding both format and tape rights.

Also picked up by KI is Belgian satire The Kidnapping of Phil Frisco (10 x 60’). Produced by local prodcos Cartouche and Deds Film for Belgium’s commercial station VTM, the show is a cautionary tale of a man who cares more for his employees than his own family. KI has acquired both the format and finished tape rights.

Retro coming-of-age comedy-drama Dreaming of England (6×30’) is also on KI’s slate. Produced by Swedish indie Art and Bob Film and Drama for local pubcaster SVT, the show goes back to 1985 in a sleepy Swedish town with three girls going to extreme lengths to fund their international travel ambitions.

Originally produced by Solar Republic for Finland’s Elisa, Finnish series Pillow Talk (Makkari) is an 8×30’ comedy-drama. Born out of the pandemic, each episode features a different couple and is always set in just one room. KI has acquired both format and finished tape rights.

In non-scripted content, UK format Property Superstars spotlights Instagram real estate agent Tyron Ash and his team of agents. The 3×60’ show is made by London’s Crackit Productions.

Another format is The Perfect Dessert. Originally developed and produced with Keshet Broadcasting by Israel’s July August Productions, the baking format is broadcast on Keshet 12. A second season has already been ordered for next year.

Returning for a second season is Killer Camp, a horror-themed reality competition format set in an 80s American-style summer camp where contestants must do everything they can to stay alive.

Rebooted as an 8×60’ order with America’s The CW network now also on board as a commissioning channel, Killer Camp season two premieres in the US from October 10 with ITV2 in the UK to follow soon after. The show is made by UK indie Tuesday’s Child.

Other shows on the slate include Viaplay thriller series Furia (8×60’), Estonian far right docuseries Surrounded by Enemies (6×60’) and Icelandic dramedy Journey (6×30’).
