Televisa Licenses Four Keshet Intl. Scripted Formats

First up: “Loaded,” on the business sheenanigans surrounding vid game creation

MADRID – Underscoring the rapid globalization of taste in Latin America, Keshet Intl. has pacted with Televisa for the Mexican TV giant Televisa to acquire remake rights to four scripted formats in  the KI slate over the next three years.

Televisa will broadcast the Spanish-language redos will in Mexico; U.S. Hispanic network Univision holds U.S. rights to air the makeovers to its audiences.

Deal kicks in with “Loaded,” a four-time Israeli Academy award winner, including for best comedy, created by Muli Segev and Assaf Harel produced by Keshet Broadcasting, and already the subject of an English-language remake at the U.K.’S Channel 4.

Entitled “Realidad Aumentada,” and to be directed by Jorge Aragon, working with an in-house production team at Televisa, the first remake will go into production this month in Mexico.

Expanding Televisa- Keshet relationship, it turns on four bet friends who develop a video game which sell’s millions of copies worldwide, converting them into overnight multi-millionaires. But a newer, young, richer player threatens to steal their r next project and develop its on his own. China’s Huace Group/Croton Media has licensed “Loaded” for a Chinese retread.

Televisa will now focus on choosing a further three formats for adaptation from the catalogue of Keshet Intl, the local production/international distribution arm of Israel’s Keshet Media Group. Keshet sales slate highlights include “Prisoners of War,” which engendered “Homeland,” interactive talent show “Rising Star” and Emmy Award-winning buddy comedy, “Traffic Light.”
