It is now taken over by SBS in Belgium, HRT in Croatia, Mola TV in Indonesia, RTE in Ireland and Talpa TV in the Netherlands. Keshet International also sold “Secret Bridesmaids’ Business” to TVNZ in New Zealand, TV4 in Sweden for its AVOD TV4 Play service and Channel 4 in the UK. The show will be broadcast on More4 and available for streaming on All 4. Discussions are underway with broadcast partners in other territories.
“We are delighted but not surprised to see the ‘Secret Bridesmaids’ Business’ taken over by such a wide range of broadcast partners,” said Keren Shahar, COO and President of Distribution of Keshet International. “This series has everything viewers are looking for right now: sassy women, startling twists and lots of drama!”
Keshet Studios is also developing an American adaptation of the format that targets streaming and premium cable. The series is based on the play by Elizabeth Coleman and was inspired by her book of the same name.
Keshet International’s scripted title list includes Viaplay’s “Porni”, which has just been renewed for a second and third season; Keshet 12’s “Line in the Sand”, Israel’s most popular drama since 2015, which has also just been renewed for a second season; and “Furia,” the eight-part thriller from Viaplay and ZDF which will be released later this year. The banner also distributes BBC One’s “The Trial of Christine Keeler” which has already been acquired in the United States (HBO Max) and Australia (BBC First and ABC), among other territories.
