2 October 2017 – Keshet International (KI) today announced sales for the new fall NBC series THE BRAVE, produced by Universal Television and Keshet Studios, to pan regional pay TV broadcast network HBO Asia and TVNZ in New Zealand. The deal with HBO Asia sees the drama available across 18 territories on HBO Asia’s network of channels.

These international deals for THE BRAVE come as the 10 p.m. September 25 debut of the new series on NBC delivered more viewers to the plum time period following the hit competition series, The Voice.

Six million viewers, representing a 20% increase over NBC’s average in the timeslot last season, tuned into the debut episode, bringing the network its best adult 18-49 rating in the time period with entertainment programming in seven months. On Facebook and Twitter, THE BRAVE also proved to be the #2 trending broadcast drama of the night. According to the L+3 ratings, THE BRAVE grew by +40% amongst 18-49 year olds (from 1.33m to 1.86m) and more than +2.5m viewers overall.

“Demand is high from international buyers for a series generating the kind of heat we have seen this year for THE BRAVE,” said Keren Shahar, COO & President of Distribution for KI. “Its stellar cast and high production values, combined with diverse storylines and locations set around the world, set this compelling work apart. It truly has become a standout in the global marketplace.”

Executive produced by writer-creator Dean Georgaris (The Manchurian Candidate), Matt Corman and Chris Ord, along with Keshet’s Avi Nir, Alon Struzman, Peter Traugott and Rachel Kaplan, THE BRAVE is a fresh, heart-pounding journey into the complex world of our elite undercover military heroes. A team of analysts that wield the world’s most advanced surveillance technology work with a squad of highly trained undercover specialists as they execute missions in some of the most dangerous places in the world.

The series stars Anne Heche (Men in Trees), Mike Vogel (Under the Dome), Tate Ellington (Quantico) Demetrius Grosse (Banshee), Natacha Karam (Homeland), Noah Mills (2 Broke Girls), Sofia Pernas (Jane the Virgin) and Hadi Tabbal (The Blacklist).
