    Keshet sets up Canadian hub

    Keshet International (KI), the sales arm of Israel’s Keshet Media Group, is pairing with veteran television exec Mark Rubinstein to launch a new company in Canada.

    Keshet Canada will engage with the local industry to develop, produce and coproduce original content based on the Israeli company’s slate of scripted and unscripted formats.

    The JV, which will have the rights to over 50 KI properties, will be overseen by Rubinstein, who has previously served as the president and CEO of Insight Sports and chief operating officer of Alliance Atlantis Broadcasting.

    “Keshet’s swift international growth in recent years is a testament to the company’s ability to transcend international borders with its innovative scripted and unscripted programming,” said Rubinstein.

    The move comes just a few weeks after the company joined forces with David Haslingden’s Northern Pictures to launch Keshet Australia.

    KI is in the process of recruiting to set up an LA base, following its expansion into the UK in December 2012 with the hiring of Sara Johnson and Lee Mason for its London office.

    Keshet is known for the drama series Prisoners of War, which was remade in the US as Homeland, as well as various gameshow formats.

    Ingenious targets UK start-ups

    The venture capital division of investment group Ingenious has pledged to pump over £2m (US$3.1m) into fledgling media businesses in the UK.

    The Ingenious Seed Investment Programme will invest a total of £2.25m into 15 of the “most promising” start-ups in the country’s media and creative industries by September.

    Ingenious will work with successful applicants to develop their business models, build infrastructure and begin generating revenues.

    Patrick Bradley, CEO of Ingenious Ventures, said: “Finding 15 great ideas in three months is a challenge, but we’re confident the ideas are out there.”

    Ingenious Ventures has to date invested over £8bn in creative products and businesses, including box office hits such as Avatar and Simon Fuller’s 19 Entertainment, the prodco that created the Idol talent show format.

    A separate investment fund managed by Ingenious, Ingenious Media Active Capital (IMAC), invested almost £1m in UK production company Whizz Kid Entertainment in March, for the creation of TV shows and formats.

    IMAC also owns UK distributor DRG, which has been the subject of sale speculation since August last year. A spokesman declined to comment today.

    Brazil preps Annecy showcase

    The Brazilian offering at this week’s Annecy animation festival in France will be headlined by a polar bear who finds a tunnel to the South Pole.


    Bi-Polar Bear
    Bi-Polar Bear (26x11′) is being developed by Santa Catarina-based Belli Studio and production is planned to start in 2014. Rubens Belli is the director and producer while Aline Muxfeldt Belli is exec producer.

    The story follows a polar bear who discovers an elevator that travels to the South Pole, and his adventures fighting an bunch of evil killer whales. The show was created by Micki Mihich.

    “We have two cable channels that are interested for Latin America and one free TV channel for Brazil. During Annecy, I will meet with some distributors to talk about this project,” said Muxfeldt Belli, who will be at Annecy for the first time as part of the Brazilian TV Producers (BTVP) delegation.

    “While these negotiations are going on we will be working to build the budget using some Brazilian incentive laws and some funds. We will also present the project to some investors.”


    Nutriamigos
    Another Brazilian animation house, São Paulo’s HGN Produções, will be in Annecy presenting new project Nutriamigos (26x11′), an educational series for three- to seven-year-olds about healthy eating. HGN is developing pilots and is looking for international coproduction and distribution partners.

    HGN has a partner for the project, Brazilian nutrition firm PEN, which stages live-action events based on the same characters. HGN has so far made a teaser and three English-language pilots, and Brazilian public channels and other funding sources are also being tapped for the series.

    “We have TV Brasil and TV Cultura interested in airing the series and we are seeking other funding through BNDES Procult and Fundo Setorial do Audiovisual,” said HGN chief Haroldo Guimarães Neto. “We plan to complete 26 episodes by end of 2014.”

    HGN is also working on new toons Mazzaropi, based on Brazilian filmmaker Amacio Mazzaropi; The Rabbit & the Bear (26x11′), with Torro Publicidade; and 2D feature Puss in Boots in Perrault’s Kingdom.

    Other companies travelling to Annecy under the BTVP banner include Lightstar Studios, Playground and ParanoidBR, the latter a candidate for the advertising films award with short film Mortes. Another BTVP member, Gullane, is also competing in the feature-length film category with Rio 2096: A Story of Love & Fury.

    Big RTL Thrill adds English feed

    RTL Group aims to expand the audience of its Indian joint-venture channel Big RTL Thrill by introducing an English feed.

    The Group joined up with India’s Reliance Broadcast Network in 2012 to launch the male-skewing channel, which includes Hindi-dubbed content from FremantleMedia, Endemol and Red Bull.

    The channel was initially broadcast in the Uttar Pradesh region before expanding into Mumbai.

    Its range has now grown to include a host of key markets, including Kolkatta, Delhi, Maharashtra and Gujarat.

    Big RTL Thrill, which will reach 29 million viewers, carries a variety of shows ranging from Fear Factor and Wipe Out to Distraction and Battle of the Bods. It also broadcasts wrestling and sport, targeting 15–44s.

    Sunil Kumaran, Reliance’s business head of regional TV, said: “With this latest development we intend to emulate the same success we have achieved in Hindi-speaking markets.”

    A possible additional channel from the RTL/Reliance partnership was mentioned in May 2011 when news of the link-up first broke. However, representatives of both firms said today they were only focused on Thrill at presen

    Last Cop wakes up in France

    France’s TF1 will air a local version of German crime series The Last Cop after picking up the format rights from distributor Red Arrow International.

    The show, titled Falco in France, is about a policeman in the 1980s who falls into a coma and wakes up 17 years later.

    The new version, produced by Beaubourg Audiovisuel, will premiere at 20.50 (CET) on June 20.

    “The idea of a macho cop who suddenly wakes up after 20 years in a coma and clashes with modern times – and methods – perfectly fits the worldwide retro trend,” said Aline Avedikian, regional sales manager for France at Germany’s Red Arrow.

    With shares of up to 181% above channel average and a fifth season commissioned, The Last Cop was one of the most successful series for Red Arrow sibling Sat.1 in Germany.

    Last month, it was revealed that a local version of The Last Cop was on Red Arrow’s slate in the US.

    Red Arrow-backed Fabrik Entertainment (fka Fuse Entertainment) and Fox Television Studios are producing the series for cablenet TNT. Sylvester Stallone is among the executive producers, alongside Kevin King, Mikkel Bondesen, Henrik Bastin and writer Chris Fedak. Kristen Campo is acting as co-executive producer.
