UMI And Ananey Studios Collaborate On ‘Pisces Lane’ for Nickelodeon Israel

Universal Music Israel, a division of Universal Music Group, and Ananey Studios, a ViacomCBS company, will partner on Pisces Lane, a new series created by Michal Cooper Keren (SpydersSpell Keepers) and Lior Yaron. Pisces Lane centres on three 16-year-old best friends growing up together in a mixed neighbourhood in Jaffa where Jews, Arabs and refugees from Africa live side by side. Though they each come from a different culture, their friendship is stronger than any language or religion.

Produced by Ananey Studios in collaboration with The Co-Production Company, Pisces Lane follows sixteen-year-old best friends Dalina, Ella and Yasmin, who grew up together in a mixed neighborhood in Jaffa. They start a multi-lingual band called Talatha, whose original music will be included in the show. UMG Israel will produce and release all music.

The series marks the first time Universal Music Group (UMG) has partnered to deliver musical production for a scripted series in Israel. UMG Israel will produce and release all the music for the series.

The new live-action teen series will air on Nickelodeon Israel for Hot Cable Network. The Co-Production Company will secure financing and global distribution for territories outside Israel.

The series is created by Michal Cooper Keren and Lior Yaron, with Cooper Keren serving as showrunner. The writing duo have previously collaborated on Spyders for Nickelodeon International; Spell Keepers, which was sold to HBO Europe and other European broadcasters; North Star, which was adapted into US show The Lodge and aired on Disney channels in 100 countries; and Summer Days, which aired in dubbed versions on dozens of Disney channels in western Europe and South America.

Yoram Mokady, managing director of Universal Music Israel, said: “Given that this collaboration among these leading international leaders occurs in this exciting teen tv series means that it will significantly enhance the discovery, nurturing and exposure of Israeli talent’s next wave. This partnership with Ananey Studios is one of several major projects that UMG Israel will launch in the coming months as we look to expand the profile of Israeli music around the world”.

Orly Atlas-Katz, CEO of Ananey and EVP of ViacomCBS Israel, said, “Pisces Lane is a truly unique teen series in so many ways, and the music in it is no different. We are excited to be collaborating with UMG Israel and to bring to viewers everywhere not only a riveting story and characters but also up and coming music talents”.
