CBS Studios International announces co-production for Israeli drama District Y CBS Studios International has announced a co-production agreement for the development of a new Israeli drama District Y (10x60’ - CBS Studios International/L. Benasuly Productions) with creator and writer Leora Kamenetzky (Fauda, False Flag) and L. Benasuly Productions, producer of Israeli dramas, such as ‘Fauda’ and ‘Hatufim’ (Homeland). ‘District Y’ is part of CBS’ first-look agreement with Alon Aranya’s Paper Plane Productions. This collaboration with the Israeli producers will leverage CBS’ creative, financial and global distribution resources. This is the first non-English language, international co-production agreement for CBS Studios International and also includes the worldwide distribution and international remake rights for the series. Israel’s public broadcasting corporation, Kan, has commissioned the development of the new series. ‘District Y’ is being developed as a 10-part, returnable series that centres on a special police unit in Jaffa, Israel, the southern tip of Tel Aviv where Jews and Arabs live together as the city undergoes an accelerated gentrification. When a 17-year-old Jewish girl is murdered, the local police precinct finds itself under pressure to establish a special task force charged with investigating both the murder and a notorious Arab crime family responsible for the street war in Jaffa. An Arab-Jewish cop and an Israeli-Russian cop who is Christian, are assigned to the special task force. The cops, the crime families and the Arab and Jewish residents of Jaffa will soon be asked to reconsider their allegiances when the Israeli-Palestinian conflict deters the authorities from enforcing the law, resulting in the death toll spiralling out of control.FormatBiz
