Keshet International (KI) announced the acquisition of the one-of-a-kind Scandi Noir crime dramedy, Fallet (The Case) from FLX.
The 8 x 30' English and Swedish language series will launch internationally at Miptv in April, along with a diverse slate of new and returning programming spanning all genres.
Also headlining the slate is the new comedy drama Loaded, a co-production between AMC, Channel 4, Hillbilly Television and Keshet UK and true-crime series World's Most Evil Killers which has recently debuted on Sky PICK in the UK, outperforming its slot by up to 137% to become the highest-rated show on Sunday night at 10 PM in the last four years.
In addition to Loaded, KI continues to deliver unique high-end scripted fare with season two of BBC One’s family drama The A Word as well as Prisoners of War India and The Paper.
The entertainment formats slate includes a new fast-paced studio game show, Contacts, which is all about who you know, as players must rely solely on the knowledge possessed by the contacts in their mobile phone to answer questions against the clock; the outdoor action-packed game show Flight Club in which a group of friends take part in wild challenges on their way to the airport to win a holiday of a lifetime; and the celebrity panel game show Lovers or Liars in which stars (and viewers at home) become the detectives of ture love.
These new formats join the unique social experiments Manbirth and Boxed which launched at Mipcom 2016 and have gone on to sell in Latin America and Asia.
Keren Shahar, KI COO and President of Distribution, said, "I’m proud to say our Miptv slate is an exciting hybrid of our home grown content alongside some brilliant off-beat, high-rating gems from a diverse range of international markets. Our growing finished programming catalogue offers high quality content for broadcasters anywhere in the world complimented by some really neat, light and funny pure entertainment formats."
