Hot on the heels of the 4 Emmy awards won by Showtime’s, Homeland, international sales of the Israeli original, Prisoners of War, surge

Keshet International, the worldwide distributor of Keshet Media Group, has licensed format rights and broadcast rights for its successful drama, Prisoners of War.

In Russia, Weit Media is set to produce a local version of Prisoners of War for an undisclosed broadcaster.

 

Elsewhere, several channels have picked up broadcast rights to the original version:
Australian channel, SBS, has licensed Seasons 1 and 2 of Prisoners of War and will broadcast the series in Hebrew with English subtitles. Franco-German network, ARTE, licensed broadcast rights for Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg and Switzerland. Finland’s YLE will air the series in 2013 with Finnish subtitles.

 

These deals come after the Israeli drama was broadcast on Sky Arts in the UK and is also currently available in the US on online video service, Hulu.
