During its stint at Miptv, the distributor announced the sale of dramas Sleeping Bears and Commandments to Globosat Brazil, Stockholm to CBC in Canada and 7 Faces to SBS in Australia, together with other international deals. 

Keshet International, a global content producer and distributor, has announced today the sale of a series of foreign language scripts in the run-up to Miptv. These are Stockholm, Sleeping Bears, Commandments, season two of 7 Faces, False Flag and When Heroes Fly.

After its international premiere at the Toronto Film Festival last year, Artza Productions is enjoying its first international sale with Stockholm, which will land at Canada's CBC for its newly launched broadcast service CBC Gem.

Based on the successful book by Noa Yedlin, this Israeli dark comedy starring a lively group of seniors who cover up the death of a friend in order to be able to win a Nobel Prize posthumously is being adapted for the US audiences by Keshet Studios.

In addition, Globosat has acquired the rights to broadcast two dramas in Hebrew: Sleeping Bears and Commandments.

This deal with Brazil's leading pay-tv operator marks the first international sales of Sleeping Bears by July August Films, a thrilling psychological thriller written by Keren Margalit selected for the Berlinale series last year; and Commandments by Abot Hameiri Barkai, a drama centered on the dilemmas surrounding the personal and religious identity of those who join the Israeli army.

KI has also completed the first overseas sale of Turkish drama 7 Faces with SBS. The Australian multi-lingual and multicultural station has acquired the broadcast rights to the Bir Films series that presents seven interconnected stories of life in Istanbul. It is the first Turkish series chosen by SBS On Demand.

Other offers in foreign languages include pay-tv rights for both seasons of exciting spy thriller False Flag for BETV in Belgium. In addition, Hulu recently acquired the exclusive North American broadcast rights for both seasons of the show, as did Canal+ for France.

Along with its global deal with Netflix for When Heroes Fly, the KI sales team has sold the non-exclusive SVOD rights for the Spiro Films thriller to PickBox in Croatia, Serbia, Slovenia, Macedonia, Montenegro and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
