Medialaan will be taking 188 hours of content for the tweens’ and teens’ finished series which encompass daily-drama, live action and situation comedy. The Hebrew language shows originally premiered on Nickelodeon Israel and Teen Nick exclusively on Yes TV and are produced by Nutz Productions, a subsidiary of the multi-channel media group Ananey Communications.

This is the first time Medialaan has picked up any Hebrew-language live action kids’ series, and it follows hot on the heels of KI’s recent agreements with HBO for all three series of both The Greenhouse (175x22’) and Spell Keepers (150x22’), and SIC for three series of Bed & Biscuit (totalling 51x22’) and the first series of Spell Keepers (50x22’).

“As a leading TV broadcaster in Belgium we are delighted to work together with Keshet International and are convinced that these high-quality and high-volume live action series will appeal to a wide audience,” commented Medialaan’s head of kids, Serge Van Eyck. “We believe that the stories told in these series are universal and will be warmly appreciated by our Belgian kids.”

“It is exciting to see there is a growing appetite for high-quality foreign language finished series internationally, particularly amongst broadcasters looking for high-volume deals,” added Nicola Andrews, KI’s senior sales and commercial director, kids.
