The Israeli TV series Nehama, produced by HOT, will open the Canneseries television festival in France this year and compete for its top awards.

The show, which has yet to hit airwaves in Israel, will have its global premiere at the competition next month, alongside nine other shows from around the world. This year, Nehama is the only Israeli television series in the competition.

Nehama, created by Reshef Regev Levi (Haborer/The Arbitrator), tells the story of Guy Nehama, a widower with five children who gives up his hi-tech job after his wife dies to pursue his love of stand-up comedy. The show stars Levi, Yuval Scharf (McMafia), Shalom Michaelshwilli (Haborer) and Liron Vaisman (Hamidrasha/Mossad 101).

Last year, at the first inaugural Canneseries competition, the Keshet show When Heroes Fly won the top prize, also before it first aired in Israel. The show went on to be picked up by Netflix and made available to tens of millions of users worldwide. Also last year, the HOT series Miguel took home the Canneseries prize for special performance, and it will enter the British streaming service My5 later this month.
