Israeli pubcaster Kan 11 has ordered The Malevolent Bride, a new supernatural thriller from Our Boys co-creator Noah Stollman, produced as the first collaboration between US-based A+E Studios and Israel-based Ananey Studios.
A+E Studios will co-produce the 8 x 45-minute series and handle global distribution for all territories outside of Israel.
The Malevolent Bride is a modern supernatural thriller that follows the hunt for a vengeful spirit terrorizing an unsuspecting Hasidic community in present-day Jerusalem. A pair of unlikely demon-hunters – Hasidic psychologist Malki Price and agnostic young physicist Be’er – join forces to uncover the secret behind the malevolent spirit’s origins.
The series is created, written and executive produced by Noah Stollman, Avigail Ben-Dor Niv and director Oded Davidoff, who will also serve as director.
Barry Jossen and Tana Jamieson serve as executive producers for A+E Studios, while Orly-Atlas Katz and Osnat Saraga serve as executive producers for Ananey Studios.
Lenore Entertainment Group’s Adam Berkowitz brokered the deal between A+E Studios and Ananey and also serves as executive producer.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Ananey to produce The Malevolent Bride, the first local language production for A+E Studios outside of North America,” said Barry Jossen, president & head of A+E Studios.
“As we continue our rapid growth, it is our goal to produce high quality series for designated primary markets that will also appeal to worldwide audiences.”
