Netflix greenlights new projects from Israeli producers

Netflix has ordered straight to series an untitled project from Lior Raz & Avi Issacharoff, creators of Israeli political thriller television series, Fauda.

The untitled project, in which Raz will also star, is inspired by actual events and follows a high-stakes global operation by the CIA and Mossad to track down and kill one of the world’s most wanted terrorists.

Fauda will premiere its second season on Netflix in all regions around the world outside of Israel and France.

Meanwhile another series, political espionage thriller Hit and Run, is also in development in which a happily married man’s life is turned upside down when his wife is killed in a mysterious hit and run accident.

“We are incredibly excited to start these projects with Netflix. It is an honor for us to continue our relationship with them and we are thrilled to be expanding our stories to be shared worldwide,” said creators Raz and Issacharoff.

“Lior and Avi are excellent storytellers and we’re proud to expand our relationship with them,” said Cindy Holland, Vice President, Original Content for Netflix. “We’re drawn to the global vision they have for their projects, each infused with drama, urgency, and relevance to our modern era.”

One Comment:

  1. Anyone who likes espionage and spy dramas will enjoy this show which for an Israeli production provides a reasonably even handed look at both the Arab and Israeli points of view regarding the politics of the region.
    I believe a different beginning to the series was filmed for the Netflix version from that shown in Israel.
