13Global will be responsible for strengthening and developing relationships with international entities, distribution companies, channels and creators worldwide.
Israeli free-to-air channel Reshet 13 has launched a new global initiative called 13Global for the development and creation of content for the international market.
13Global will be responsible for strengthening and developing relationships with international entities, distribution companies, channels and creators worldwide. Its main goal is to create development and production collaborations of formats and series intended for broadcast on “Reshet 13” while also ensuring they are suited for international distribution.
Three projects have recently been introduced into the market in collaboration with international entities: the dating programme Find Me Somebody to Love, the drama series Blackspace, and the factual entertainment show Kings of the Kitchen. Several additional projects are also in various stages of development.
Leading the venture is Ami Glam, Reshet 13’s VP of Content. Through his work with central media corporation in Europe and the US, he was responsible for numerous Israeli formats sold to various territories worldwide.
Glam stated: “Reshet 13 launches 13Global at a time when the international television content distribution market is blooming and has great potential for worldwide success. We tend to use Reshet platform as a testing ground for new and compelling content that can be adapted worldwide.”
Reshet holds an extensive internationally acclaimed TV content catalogue featuring formats and programmes across all genres such as Mossad, the Emmy award winner Nevsu, Harem, Girlfriends, award-winning scripted drama Hostages and Game of Chefs.
