Paris, April 22nd, 2021

For immediate release

Federation Entertainment has finalized several major sales for its latest series Blackspace (8 x 1 hour), a riveting psychological thriller that takes place in an Israeli high school.

Blackspace has been sold to RTL (Germany) and NPO (Netherlands) and to Latin America to a streaming service, whilst NETFLIX bought the remaining territories as part of a worldwide deal.

Written by Anat Gafni and Sahar Shavit and directed by Ofir Lobel, Blackspace is co-produced by Drama Team (Chaim Sharir, Mosh Danon) and Federation Entertainment (Pascal Breton, Lionel Uzan) for Reshet 13. The Israeli broadcaster recently announced that Season 2 is in the works, following on from the series’ success and acclaimed reviews.

 

Pitch:

What starts out as a normal morning at a small-town high school in Israel turns into a nightmare when anonymous masked figures commit a massacre leaving four students dead. Chaos reeks between terrified parents as a gripping investigation ensues. The lead detective knows this school well as he himself experienced a trauma many years before…

Named after the app that the students use to communicate, Blackspace is a psychological thriller that focuses on the hidden and secret lives of teenagers. As parents, do we know who our children really are?

 

Federation holds worldwide rights to Blackspace.
