The $55 million fund is open to producers of film and TV drama projects, from any country.

The fund was created in partnership with several Israeli holding and asset management companies, including Altshuler-Shaham, Phoenix Insurance, Arxcis Global Wealth Management and Halman Aldubi Investment House Ltd.

“We decided to launch this fund because we have seen heavy demand for more high-profile dramas across all key territories. Through targeted investments like these, we will be able to bring more great stories to life and help them travel throughout the world. There is a renaissance underway in TV and film drama, and we want to bring these productions to as much of the world as possible,” said Keshet International CEO Alon Shtruzman in a release.

Keshet is behind such scripted series as Prisoners of War, which was remade as Homeland in the U.S., as well as the thriller False Flag and family drama The A Word.
