Hit Israeli Teen Drama ‘The Hood’ Gets Indian Adaptation From Abundantia Entertainment

Tel Aviv-based Ananey Studios, part of Paramount Global, has signed a deal with Indian content producer Abundantia Entertainment to develop an Indian remake of the hit Israeli live-action teen drama, “The Hood” (“Schuna”).

The original series, created by Giora Chamizer (Netflix’s “Greenhouse Academy”), is set in The Hood, a dingy cluster of low-income housing, where blue-collar families live, located in the middle of one of the richest districts. Kids in The Hood regularly prank the rich community’s snobbish teens, while the mayor constantly tries to get rid of the The Hood altogether. “The Hood” has had three hit seasons (150 x 22′) on Nickelodeon in Israel and was also sold to Portugal’s free-to-air channel RTP2.

“The Hood” adaptation will be produced under Abundantia’s young-adult focused label Filters, which joins Psych that specializes in horror and paranormal. Also being produced under the Filter label are the Indian adaptation of Israeli young-adult drama “The Missing” and the adaptation of Apeksha Rao’s young-adult book “Along Came a Spyder.”
