The Gordin Cell, the Israeli spy drama that NBC is currently piloting stateside as MICE, is now being developed for local production in Russia.

Russian production company JITV has bagged rights to adapt the espionage series for Russia and the CIS territories, distributor Keshet International has confirmed.

​“Russia has always been a great market for Keshet with the remakes of The SuccessorTraffic Light and Prisoners of War [aka Homeland] now in pre-production,” said Alon Shtruzman, Keshet International’s MD.

​The Gordin Cell (12×60′) aired on Israeli satellite TV platform Yes DBS in 2012, created by Ron Leshem and Amit Cohen and produced by Tedy Productions.

​Remake rights have since been acquired by NBC to create a show titled MICE, referring to the four main motivators for spies: money, ideology, coercion and ego. Peter Berg (Friday Night Lights) is behind the US version via his prodco Film 44.

​Keshet is one of the companies driving the Israeli format wave that has been washing over the international market over the past few years, with titles such as Prisoners of War, Tyrant, Master Class and Traffic Light.

​In recent weeks, the Tel Aviv firm – which shares control of Israel’s biggest commercial TV station, Channel 2, with Reshet Broadcasting – has set up shop in the UK to produce factual programming and distribute its formats..

​It is also heading to MipTV next week with a late including new formats like gameshow Sure or Insure and docu-reality show Remember Me?, plus scripted formats Mother’s Day; which has now gone to pilot in the US for CBS starring Debra Messing (Will & Grace); and The A Word, a drama centering on an autistic five-year-old boy.
