On the Spectrum wins top prize at television festival in France E-mail

The new Israeli television series On the Spectrum won the top prize at the Series Mania Festival in Lille, France, in May.

The Hebrew-language show, about three 20-something roommates with autism living together in an assistedliving apartment, was awarded the Best Series prize. It was produced for the YES satellite broadcaster, and was screened in Israel for the first time on 22 May.

The festival called the show “a funny and moving gem of a series that is carefully crafted and full of humanity, offering a bold new take on the autistic condition,” The Jerusalem Post reported.

It is the ninth year of the festival, which serves as a showcase for international TV professionals. Last year, YES also won first place at the festival for its court drama Yes Your Honor, a legal thriller. Showtime bought the rights to the show.
