Deadline reports HBO has ordered a 10-episode drama series centering on the three Israeli teens who disappeared, two years ago. The untitled project was created by Hagai Levi and Noah Stollman.
HBO and Keshet International’s Keshet Studios are co-producing. The series will shoot on location in Israel, in summer 2017. Israeli filmmaker Joseph Cedar is the primary director. Michael Lombardo is executive producing.
Here is more, from Deadline.
Based on actual events, the untitled series dramatizes the tragic torrent of violence that followed the disappearance of, and intensive search for, three Israeli teens during the summer of 2014. The show follows an idealistic investigator for the Shin Bet (the Israeli equivalent of the FBI) as he deals with the ramifications of violent reactions on both sides of the escalating conflict. A new command position thrusts him into a confrontation that undermines his faith and worldview, leading to a dramatic conflict between his values and the actions of those closest to him.
“We’re excited to work with Keshet and this extremely talented and creative group led by Hagai Levi,” said Casey Bloys, president of HBO Programming.
Added Levi, “HBO has always been a home to me. I’m so thrilled to work with them again, and regroup with my good friends from Keshet.”
