Keshet International’s sizzling spy drama Mice (also known as The Gordin Cell) has been sold to South Korea in a license deal which will see it become the first ever Israeli – Korean drama to air.

The scripted format will be adapted and produced by IMTV for KBS (Korean Broadcasting System). Production is soon to commence on the first season which is planned to air in early 2015. The local Korean adaptation will look at the life of a Korean pilot as he is torn between his loyalty to his family, who have associations with North Korea and his loyalty to his country.

Soeck-gu Hong, Chief Producer at KBS, said, “Mice is a spy drama but at the same time it naturally tells a story about conflicts and reconciliation between family members. We expect it to have great appeal to Korean viewers.”
