Walter Presents adds Keshet scripted pair

Scripted-logo-460_2The UK’s only foreign-language-focused VOD platform, Walter Presents, has bought two scripted series from Keshet International.

The Baker and the Beauty and Milk & Honey will both launch on the service later this year following the agreement.

Walter Presents is co-owned by Global Series Network and broadcaster Channel 4, and offered to viewers free through the All4 on-demand hub.

The Baker and the Beauty comes from Assi and Endemol Shine Israel, which yesterday launched a studio arm, is a romantic comedy in which a baker and an international superstar ‘It girl’ strike up an unlikely relationship.

Milk & Honey is a 13x25mins drama-comedy about childhood friends who launched an escort service for women. July August Productions produced it for Israeli satcaster Yes.

Jason Thorp, CEO of GSN, said: “Keshet has a great reputation in the drama space but are also delivering highly accomplished comedy dramas. We are always on the lookout for comedies that we feel our audience can relate to, so we are ecstatic to have found two absolute gems.”

Walter Presents launched earlier this year.
