Keshet International Places Kids’ Content on HBO Europe


Keshet International (KI) has inked two separate deals with HBO Europe and SIC in Portugal for more than 200 hours of live-action finished programming for children made by Ananey Communications’ Nutz Productions.

HBO picked up the SVOD rights for all three seasons of the daily drama The Greenhouse as well as three installments of the live-action series Spell Keepers for its subscription service in 13 territories across Central Europe. Portugal’s SIC went for three seasons of the sitcom Bed & Biscuit and the first installment of Spell Keepers, both of which will be dubbed for local audiences.

Nicole Correia, SIC’s acquisitions manager, said: “We are very happy to partner with Keshet International and we believe both Spell Keepers and Bed & Biscuit are a perfect fit for our audience.”

Nicola Andrews, KI’s senior sales and commercial director for kids, noted: “Our slate of live-action series from Ananey’s Nutz Productions is exceptional. Not only do these series look great and feature gripping storylines, they’re also internationally appealing—as these two high-profile deals show.”

Orly Atlas-Katz, the CEO of Ananey Communications, added: “We are very excited and honored. Our content offers a unique and entertaining viewing experience, perfected for millennials, and we are thrilled that HBO and SIC have recognized this. We trust that the vast spread and prestige these two networks bring with them will help KI deliver our content to new audiences around the world, and we are certain they will fall in love with them as well.”
