“Hit & Run” is Netflix’s first original series from Israel. The streaming service has aired Israeli shows before, such as the TV series “Fauda,” which began in 2015 and currently has three seasons, the TV show “When Heroes Fly,” which ran for one season in 2018 and starred “The Boys” performer Tomer Capon, and “Black Space”, which ran for one season in 2020. However, each of these shows were simply licensed after initial distribution on local Israeli networks. “Hit & Run,” by comparison, is the first Israeli TV series to become a Netflix Original.
“Hit & Run” comes from Avi Issacharoff and Lior Raz, who previously worked together on “Fauda.” They co-created this show with Dawn Prestwich and Nicole Yorkin, who previously co-created the Amazon Prime series “Z: The Beginning of Everything,” which tells the story of Zelda Fitzgerald. They have previously worked together on TV shows such as “The Killing” and “Flashforward.” As in “Fauda,” Raz also acts in the series.
The success of “Hit & Run” indicates that this may not be the last time Netflix looks to Israel for a new series. “Hit & Run” is currently available on Netflix.
