Donna & Shula Productions will continue to run separately under the same leadership, the producers said. Donna & Shula Productions and Syrkin are repped by CAA and Anonymous Content.

Eden, Spiegel and Syrkin most recently collaborated on Apple TV+ drama Tehran, for which Donna and Shula Productions is an executive producer.

Eden and Syrkin are co-creators of the show with Syrkin serving as director of the overall series. The second season of Tehran premiered in May, shortly after its first season won the 2021 International Emmy Award for best drama series. It was the first international series purchased and produced by Apple TV+.

“After collaborating successfully for the last 20 years over many projects, we’re taking the next step to formally join forces with this new company that will have our collective creative energy and expertise in developing and producing a wide range of inspiring and entertaining television series for global audiences,” said Eden and Spiegel in a joint statement.

“With the international production expertise that we’ve gained, we will continue to develop the most interesting stories and talents from Israel and worldwide, and bring them to international audiences,” added Syrkin.
