US studio MGM has struck an exclusive two-year first-look television deal with Israeli production company Tadmor Entertainment.

MGM/UA Television and MGM International TV will work with Tadmor Entertainment CEO Emilio Schenker to develop and coproduce original scripted series across a variety of genres for global audiences.

Tadmor was founded by entrepreneur and film producer Gideon Tadmor and is known for Only, the 2019 sci-fi film directed by Takashi Doscher; writer-director Becca Gleason’s SXSW debut Summer ’03; and Joseph Cedar’s Norman: The Moderate Rise & Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer, starring Richard Gere.

Mark Burnett, MGM’s worldwide television chairman, said: “Tadmor Entertainment shares our vision of putting the creative first to produce the highest-quality storytelling that will captivate audiences around the world.

“This partnership with Gideon, Emilio and their impressive team will allow us to tap into an entirely new pool of established and emerging creative talent from Israel, and we look forward exploring the immense opportunities that lie ahead for us to collaborate on global projects together.”

Schenker added: “It is exciting to know that MGM shares and believes in my vision of building an Israeli successful developer, financier and producer of amazing stories only Israeli writers can create. This deal with MGM is the first cornerstone in building out our international footprint and will propel us further.”
