Abundantia Entertainment to adapt Israeli drama The Missing in India
Mumbai - 05 Dec 2019 8:00 IST
Vikram Malhotra's Abundantia Entertainment is partnering with global content creation and distribution company ADD Content to adapt the hit drama series, The Missing, titled Ne'elamim in Israel. Created by Yaron Arazi, Ne'elamim has completed three seasons and a fourth has been commissioned recently.
The Missing centres on young adults, a brother-sister pair of Emma and Alon, who move to a new town and discover strange goings-on. The synopsis, shared in a press release, says "the ground water supply has been geologically poisoned and three teenagers from their high school died in mysterious circumstances a few months earlier — but when an unexplainable photograph of them surfaces, the siblings begin to doubt that they know the full story".
Hadas Mozes Lichtenstein, founder and international head at ADD Content, said in a statement, "The Missing is a gripping series which has built up a strong fan base in Israel and we are confident that with Abundantia’s track record of hits for this generation and unrivalled local understanding of the market, we can replicate that success for a whole new audience. We are also thrilled to be expanding ADD Content’s footprint in Asia with this deal, which marks our commitment to bringing compelling content to this market."
Abundantia founder Vikram Malhotra said, "We have always believed in challenging the status quo and disrupting the way stories engage and impact their fans. I am delighted that we have found an amazing YA-focused story in The Missing and a like-minded partner in ADD Content. I look forward to working with Hadas and her team to create the same magic with The Missing in India."
