Keshet Studios is expanding its U.S. documentary slate with a 10-hour event series about the epic story of Kabbalah, produced with Canada’s Associated Producers and Robert Lantos through his Serendipity Point Films banner.
“It’s an honor to team with Keshet and Robert Lantos on a subject that people connect with but know very little about – especially considering its great power, scope and influence,” said Associated Producers president Simcha Jacobovici in a statement. “These are stories of secret societies and mysticism throughout the ages.”
Rob Lee, president of non-fiction programming for Keshet said, the project was the “perfect way to launch our U.S. premium documentary initiative.”
