Keshet Studios Working on Event Doc Series Kabbalah


LOS ANGELES: Keshet Studios is building up its factual slate with the ten-hour event series Kabbalah.

Keshet Studios has aligned with Canada’s Associated Producers and acclaimed feature film producer Robert Lantos (Remember, Barney’s Version, Eastern Promises) for the project. Other factual projects from Keshet include Uvda (Fact), which has been the leading current affairs series in Israel. Keshet International’s global slate includes Sabena Hijacking: My Version; #uploading_holocaust, the first documentary based entirely on existing YouTube materials; and the recently added true-crime slate that follows a first-look deal with Woodcut Media.

Simcha Jacobovici, president of Associated Producers, commented, “It’s an honor to team with Keshet and Robert Lantos on a subject that people connect with but know very little about—especially considering its great power, scope and influence. These are the stories of secret societies and mysticism throughout the ages. It’s also the story of those individuals who were called ‘heretics’ by some and ‘heroes’ by many. It’s real life Da Vinci Code. The audience will be both shocked and fascinated by what we uncover.”

Rob Lee, the president of nonfiction programming for Keshet Studios, added, “This is the perfect way to launch our U.S. premium documentary initiative and complement the impressive ongoing work of Keshet International. We’ve assembled a team that is uniquely suited to tell this intriguing story about a powerful secret movement that has influenced so many major historical events, and which has counted such game-changing luminaries among its followers as Michelangelo, Isaac Newton and Benjamin Franklin, just to name a few.”
