Netflix has given a 10-episode series order to the thriller “Hit and Run” from “Fauda” co-creators Avi Issacharoff and Lior Raz (pictured) and “Z: The Beginning of Everything” duo Dawn Prestwich and Nicole Yorkin.
Co-created by the four writers, the series follows a happily married man whose life is turned upside down when his wife is killed in a mysterious hit and run accident.
Issacharoff, Raz, Prestwich and Yorkin will executive produce alongside Peter Principato, Itay Reiss and Kimberlin Belloni of Artists First, and David Hoberman, Todd Lieberman and Laurie Zaks of Mandeville Films.
“Fauda,” which debuted its second season on the streamer earlier this year, has been a huge hit for Netflix and overseas. Back in March the Israeli political drama took home 11 awards from the Israel Academy for Film and Television, including a best actor prize for Raz.
Prestwich and Yorkin most recently co-created and ran Amazon’s Zelda Fitzgerald drama “Z: The Beginning of Everything.” Their previous credits include “Flashforward,” “The Killing” and FX’s “The Riches.”
