Israeli Drama Blackspace Headed to Netflix


Federation Entertainment has inked a number of deals for the psychological thriller Blackspace, which is set to air on Netflix, among other platforms.

Blackspace has been sold to RTL (Germany) and NPO (Netherlands) and to a LatAm streaming service. Netflix picked up the remaining territories as part of a worldwide deal.

The 8×1-hour series takes place in an Israeli high school, where anonymous masked figures commit a massacre leaving four students dead. The lead detective on the case knows this school well, as he himself experienced a trauma many years before.

Written by Anat Gafni and Sahar Shavit and directed by Ofir Lobel, Blackspace is co-produced by Drama Team (Chaim Sharir, Mosh Danon) and Federation Entertainment (Pascal Breton, Lionel Uzan) for Reshet 13.
