Keshet International's Plan B nominated for 5 Israeli academy awards

MUMBAI: Keshet International’s comedy-drama Plan B is enjoying an action-packed 2016 awards season. It has received five nominations at the Israeli Academy Awards 2016 and has been nominated in the TV Comedy Series category at the 56th Monte Carlo TV Festival.

The nominated categories for the Israeli Academy Awards include Best Comedy Series, Best Screenplay, Best Director, Best Actor in a Comedy Series and Best Actress in a Comedy.

At the Monte Carlo TV Festival, Plan B will compete for the coveted Comedy Series Nymph d’Or, alongside some of the world’s most internationally renowned comedies/comedy dramas includingBetter Call Saul (Sony Pictures, US), Catastrophe (Avalon TV/Amazon Studios, UK), Ash Vs Evil Dead (Starz, US and New Zealand), Cradle to Grave (ITV Studios, UK) and Maniac (Rubicon TV AS, Norway). The winner will be announced at the star-studded ceremony on 16 June 2016.

Plan B was created by Ido Rosenblum (BOOM!, Touch ), who also plays the lead character, and Asaf Shalmon. It was produced by July August Productions for Keshet Broadcasting and is available from Keshet International as a 9 x 30’ series or scripted format.

Plan B tells the story of Omri Gordon, a cool, laid-back and self-absorbed rock-star who one day finds an Ethiopian baby on his doorstep, holding a note saying he’s the dad. At first he does everything in his power to resist his fate, but in the process realizes life has given him a whole new song to sing.

Omri’s claim to fame is his ethnically diverse group of band members. This “politically correct” appearance is put to the test when he discovers he has a child of mixed race origin.

Even though Omri had an affair with one of his singer’s sisters, he refuses to believe the child is his. He is not ready to become a dad and in addition believes that a child will ruin his chances of winning back Yael, his great lost love. If Yael finds out Omri fathered a child while the two of them dated, all of the long-stem roses in the world won’t bring her back. But once the paternity test comes back positive, Omri has to face a new reality.
