Hit Israeli drama The Missing to be remade in India
The Missing is a young-adult thriller about two siblings investigating the death of three teenagers from their high school
ADD Content has signed a deal with Vikram Malhotra-led Abundantia Entertainment to develop an Indian remake of the hit young-adult drama The Missing, which is originally called Ne’elamim in Israel.
The original series, created by Yaron Arazi and produced by ADD, has had three hit seasons on Nickelodeon in Israel and has recently been commissioned for a fourth.
Abundantia Entertainment will adapt The Missing under ‘FILTERS’ – its new content vertical focused on creating new IP in the young adult genre.
The Missing is a young-adult thriller about Emma and Alon, siblings who move to a small town and quickly find out that nothing is quite as it seems in their new neighbourhood. The groundwater supply has been geologically poisoned, and three teenagers from their high school died under mysterious circumstances a few months earlier. When an unexplainable photograph of the victims surfaces, the siblings begin to doubt that they know the full story.
Hadas Mozes Lichtenstein, Founder and Head of International at ADD Content said, “The Missing is a gripping series which has built up a strong fan base in Israel, and we’re 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.”
Founder and CEO at Abundantia Entertainment, Vikram Malhotra, added: “Abundantia has an exciting slate of films and premium original shows in development and production with some of the best creators in the business. 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.”
