Netflix works with Israel’s Fauda creators

Netflix has ordered a series from the creators of Israeli political thriller Fauda and put another project from them in development.

Avi Issacharoff

The streaming giant has given a straight-to-series order to an as-yet-untitled project from Avi Issacharoff and retired Israeli special forces soldier Lior Raz.

Inspired by actual events, it follows a high-stakes global operation by the CIA and Mossad to track down and kill one of the world’s most wanted terrorists.

Issacharoff and Raz will serve as executive producers, along with Peter Principato, Itay Reiss and Kimberlin Belloni from Principato-Young Entertainment.

Meanwhile, political espionage thriller Hit & Run is in development. It sees a happily married man’s life turned upside down when his wife is killed in a mysterious hit-and-run incident.

Creators Raz and Issacharoff will serve as executive producers, along with Principato, Reiss and Belloni and Mandeville Films’ David Hoberman, Todd Lieberman and Laurie Zaks.

Lior Raz

The partnerships with Issacharoff and Raz come after Netflix picked up the forthcoming second season of Fauda as well as the completed first run of the show last year.

The second season will premiere on Netflix around the world, with the exception of Israel and France, next year.

“We’re drawn to the global vision they have for their projects, each infused with drama, urgency and relevance to our modern era,” Cindy Holland, VP of original content for Netflix, said of Issacharoff and Raz.

In related news, Netflix has renewed its drama Glow for a 10-episode second season.

Set in 1985 LA, the series stars Alison Brie as a struggling out-of-work actress who joins the first-ever women’s wrestling TV show.

It was created by showrunners Liz Flahive (Homeland) and Carly Mensch (Nurse Jackie), who executive produce alongside Orange is the New Black creator Jenji Kohan as well as Tara Herrmann.
