Content producer and distributor Keshet International has completed its first sales for “Ralph & Katie,” which debuted to rave reviews in the UK on BBC One from October 5. The company has sold the new 6x30’ comedy-drama to Disney+ as part of a wider deal that also includes all three seasons of “The A Word,” the BBC One drama which inspired the eponymous spin-off series starring Leon Harrop and Sarah Gordy as newlyweds Ralph and Katie.

Disney+ has licensed multiple rights for both titles across all of Europe (excluding the UK), the Middle East and Africa. “The A Word” is available on Disney+ across the Nordics and Belgium, with staggered launches slated for Portugal, Italy, Spain and France from November, and Germany, Austria and Switzerland following suit in the New Year. “Ralph & Katie” will debut in early 2023.

“Being part of the team which has helped Keren Margalit’s “Yellow Peppers” develop from a beautiful family drama here in Israel into a returning primetime BBC One drama that has sold in more than 80 territories and spawned its own spin-off is incredibly satisfying. We are so thrilled that buyers are as captivated with Leon and Sarah’s performances as we are,”  said Keren Shahar, COO and President of Distribution at Keshet International.

With a new stand located in Riviera 7 (K22), Keshet International is back in Mipcom Cannes with its biggest delegation since 2019, and a slate brimming with fresh new content to match.
