“When Heroes Fly” wins 1st prize at CanneSeries

“When Heroes Fly” A drama series created by writer and director Omri Givron, co-creator of the Israeli show “Hostages,” took the 1st prize for best series at CanneSeries, an offshoot of the Cannes Film Festival which aims to highlight series from all over the world and to give an international voice to this increasingly popular and fiercely creative new art form.  The show stars Tomer Kapon, with original music by Roy Nassee. Most importantly for me, the show, which is set mostly in Colombia, features music from the upcoming TELAVANA album as well as a couple of tracks by Los Hacheros. It’s the first time my music is featured in an international TV series, and it looks like it’s off to a good start with this prize.
