yes Studios, the Tel Aviv-based television content sales, distribution, development and co-production company, introduces two compelling new award-winning series to U.S. audiences.
Kvodo, a tense thriller that inspired the Bryan Cranston Showtime limited series Your Honor, about a prominent judge who, through a tragic twist of fate, gets caught up in the mafia underworld, is now available on Amazon Prime Video (both Season One and Season Two).
Just for Today, a poignant nine-episode limited series about a group of released prisoners living in a soon-to-close halfway house in south Tel Aviv, is set for release August 23 on Amazon Prime Video and Google Play.
“We are so pleased to present two of our most awarded and captivating television series to the U.S. viewers,” said a yes Studios company representative. “Kvodo and Just for Today epitomize great Israeli television that translates beautifully to global viewers while offering unique insight into our culture and personal stories.”
Kvodo, created by Ron Ninio and Shlomo Mashiach, is a Grand Prix winner of the 2017 Series Mania Festival and an Official Selection of multiple other international festivals.. KVODO’s success has inspired international format adaptations in several territories including Germany, India, Italy, France, Turkey and Spain.
