Paradys has been created by Darrel Bristow-Bovey and Anton Visser

Keshet International has boarded South African prodco Quizzical Pictures’ forthcoming murder mystery series Paradys as global distribution and production partner.

Created by Darrel Bristow-Bovey and Anton Visser, Paradys (8×60’) is a tense, character-driven murder mystery set in the racially exclusive desert town of Paradys. At first glance, Paradys looks much like any small rural community in South Africa – except everyone is white.

Inspired by a real place, Paradys shuns the vision for a ‘rainbow nation’ shared by the vast majority of South Africans, but a horrific murder brings this white enclave to the brink when two black cops are sent to investigate the crime.

Bristow-Bovey is writing the series in English and Afrikaans, with John Trengove attached as director. Quizzical Pictures’ head of development Nimrod Geva is producer, while the prodco’s MD Harriet Gavshon exec produces with Arrested Industries’ CEO Anthony Kimble, Keshet Media Group’s CEO Avi Nir and Keshet International’s CEO Alon Shtruzman.
