Israel's production and distribution companies firm Keshet Media Group, Keshet 12, and Keshet International unveiled their next series to launch in Israel and on the international market: "The Best Worst Thing," an eight-part romantic drama produced by Spiro Films, the company behind the Canneseries' winning "When Heroes Fly." Keshet International will unveil more of Keshet 12's upcoming dramas at the London TV Screenings as part of their Scripted Event on Wednesday, 28 February 2024.

Keshet Broadcasting's Head of Drama and Comedy, Karni Ziv, said: "His heart-warming relationship drama has an uplifting message at its core – that even when things are as bad as you can ever imagine, there is still hope. Rona, Tal, and Sharon have lovingly imbued this series about cancer with compassion and humor, while Ayelet and Amos have made it all look real and believable on screen. Their love story makes for a compelling watch," noted.

Keshet International's MD of Distribution, Kelly Wright, commented: "Following the success of Keshet 12's 'A Body That Works' and 'Trust No One' on the international market last year, we are excited to share another Keshet drama with global buyers. We feel 'The Best Worst Thing' is what many producers and platforms are looking for now – an uplifting, feel-good relationship drama that is both intimate and universal," highlighted.

Starring Hollywood film and Israeli TV actress Ayelet Zurer ("Man of Steel," "Angels and Demons," "Munich") as a breast oncologist who finds herself sharing her own cancer treatment journey with a male politician, "The Best Worst Thing" (8x60') is created by Rona Tamir, Tal Granit, and Sharon Maymon and produced by Spiro Films.
