Netflix Announces Two New Series From FAUDA Creators
Fans of the hit Israeli political thriller series, Fauda, will be delighted with word of two shows now in development from its creators Lior Raz and Avi Issacharoff.
The first is an untiled project in which Fauda series star, Raz, with a story based on true events involving a high-stakes operation led by the CIA and the Mossad to track down and kill one of the world’s most wanted terrorists. Raz will also serve as executive producer next to Issacharoff, as well as Principato-Young Entertainment’s own Peter Principato, Itay Reiss and Kimberlin Belloni.
The aforementioned duo and Principato-Young EP trio will executive produce Hit and Run, a political espionage drama thriller about a happily married man whose life is turned upside down when his wife is killed in a mysterious hit and run accident. Mandeville Films’s David Hoberman, Todd Lieberman and Laurie Zaks will also executive produce.
“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.”
Fauda originally debut in last summer on the Yes Oh network before streaming as the first original Israeli series from Netflix the following December. Fans can catch its second season in 2018.
