Netflix Working with Fauda Creators on New Series


Lior Raz and Avi Issacharoff, the creators of the Israeli political thriller Fauda, are working with Netflix on an untitled drama series.

Netflix has ordered the untitled project straight to series. The untitled project 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. Creators Issacharoff and Raz will serve as executive producers, along with Peter Principato, Itay Reiss and Kimberlin Belloni from Principato-Young Entertainment. Raz will also star.

A second series from the team, Hit and Run, is also in development. In 2018, Fauda will premiere its second season on Netflix in all regions around the world outside of Israel and France.

Raz and Issacharoff commented: “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.”

“Lior and Avi are excellent storytellers and we’re proud to expand our relationship with them,” said Cindy Holland, the VP of 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.”
