JNS.org – The online streaming service Netflix, which recently opened operations in Israel, purchased its first Israeli television show.

Netflix acquired the adolescent-geared show “The Greenhouse” (HaKhamama in Hebrew), created by Giora Chamizer, from Nickelodeon and Yes, the Israeli business publication Globes reported.

The sale is a landmark deal because Nutz Productions, the subsidiary of Israeli company Ananey Communications, which broadcasts Nickelodeon in Israel, will produce the U.S. version of the show.

The Israeli series takes place on the shores of the Sea of Galilee. In contrast, the American version, which will be filmed in Israel, will be set near the Pacific Ocean in southern California. The title of the American show will remain “The Greenhouse” and will stream on Netflix in 2017.

Israel’s version of the show has been running for three seasons and has won the Israeli Academy of Film and Television’s award for Best Kids’ & Youth Drama.
