'The Baker and the Beauty' and 'Milk & Honey' are bound for the broadcaster's new foreign-language drama platform Walter Presents.

Israeli TV powerhouse Keshet International has sold two comedy series to Walter Presents, the recently launched on-demand platform for foreign drama from British broadcaster Channel 4.

The Baker and The Beauty and Milk & Honey will both be added to the service later this year, joining a growing line-up of international shows – including the likes of German Cold War hit Deutschland 83 and French crime drama Mafiosa – being made available free of charge to U.K. viewers.

“Keshet has a great reputation in the drama space but are also delivering highly accomplished comedy dramas," said Jason Thorp, CEO of Global Series Network, which partnered with Channel 4 to launch Walter Presents. "We are always on the lookout for comedies that we feel our audience can relate to, so we are ecstatic to have found two absolute gems."
