Netflix Just Ordered Even More Israeli Television from ‘Fauda’ Makers

Get your affairs in order and charge up your laptop: Netflix has ordered a series from the creators of the hit Israeli television thriller “Fauda.” This time, Lior Raz and Avi Issacharoff have teamed up to co-author and co-produce the show “Hit and Run” with American Dawn Prestwich and Nicole Yorkin of “Melrose Place” and “Battlestar Galactica.” That’s right — the one thing that could have improved “Fauda,” that is, having human women on its creative team, is about to happen.

The Avengers-like group of super-creatives conceived of “Hit and Run” together, which will follow a man whose life takes a turn when his wife is murdered in a hit-and-run car accident.

Raz, Issacharoff, Prestwich, and Yorkin. Two men, two women. Two Americans, two Israelis. Three Jews (we got Yorkin!) and one nice goy. The brains behind, collectively, “Fauda” and over a dozen American TV shows. We aren’t worthy.

And while we wait, go ahead and let the best Israeli-terrorism-comedy Netflix can offer tide you over.
